Twilight Time

Paul Mazursky’s affectionate memoir of the New York bohemian life circa 1953 has a feel for the milieu and an honest appraisal of the kooky culture therein: artists, actors, users, takers, sweethearts, neurotics and phonies. Lenny Baker’s main character may have an amorous relationship with his girlfriend Ellen Greene, but his strongest connection is with his overbearing mother, played to perfection by Shelley Winters. She was a Best Supporting Actress nominee for The Poseidon Adventure but not for this?  Honestly. Co-starring Lois Smith, Christopher Walken, Dori Brenner, Antonio Fargas and Lou Jacobi. On Blu-rayfrom Twilight Time.
