Bound For Glory
Rated
Hal Ashby's superb biographical film on folksinger-activist Woody Guthrie is nearly as luminous a vision of Dust Bowl Depression America as The Grapes of Wrath almost 40 years earlier. The images have a wonderful dry glow (cinematographer Haskell Wexler paints the land with light) and cast and director capture something about the whole feel of the period: the urgency and the despair, the beauty of the land, the paralysis of the economy, the frustration, the promise. Like Guthrie, Ashby is consciously primitive, but he shines nonetheless.
