Random Film Review: Fat City

Dir: John Houston | 1971 | USA | 100min

Photographed by Conrad Hall, Fat City is either bleached out exteriors or dark and dingy interiors. It has the feel of a lazy Sunday afternoon, a feel of a lifetime of lazy Sunday afternoons, of nothing to say, or do. It’s just not worth getting up sometimes. My favourite last scene of any film, ever. Great songs by Kris Kristofferson too.

Which reminds me: Kris Kristofferson's early demos Please Don't Tell Me How the Story Ends: The Demos 1968-72 is out on Monday.
