From Positif: A Chance to See Reunion (1989)
Having not yet had a chance to see Reunion (1989) myself, I wanted to make sure to highlight how hard it is in fact to get a chance to see this film.
Reunion (1989) has not, to-date, been released on DVD and received too little attention during its theatrical release. (And I was out of town during Anthology’s Schatzberg retrospective in early September.) But with an impressive lineup of talents contributing to the film — script by Harold Pinter, noted performance by Jason Robards, and chance for director/photographer Schatzberg to explore different territory from Scarecrow (1973) and The Panic in Needle Park (1971)– I’m very eager to see this film and attend the Schatzberg’s Q&A afterwards (Monday night screening only).
This week, many cinemaphiles are hoping to catch the new 35mm print of The Panic in Needle Park (1971) at the Film Forum, but that film is at least in higher circulation on DVD. It would be a terrible opportunity to miss this rare screening.
