A Day with the Boys

It’s a short experimental movie (18′) made by character actor Clu Galager, one of the most surprising pieces I’ve watched recently. It’s visually beautiful and bold, shot by legendary cinematographer László Kovács. It shows the innocence of childhood together with the potential for human violence. It was the inspiration for George Washington.

La Grande Bellezza
