Hallelujah the Hills
Adolfas Mekas, US, 1963, 35mm, 80 min., b/w
A farcical, experimental slapstick comedy set in the woods of Vermont. Jack and Leo both pine for the love of Vera but their sophomoric antics get the best of them as does the brutish Gideon, played by Ed Emshwiller who ultimately wins over Vera. Hallelujah the Hills is the New American Cinema at its most unhinged.
