LAST OF THE AMERICAN HOBOES, THE

This is a half-documentary, half-god-knows-what which delves into the sad, challenging, and ultimately inspiring plight of the American hobo circa 1967. In the hands of docu-artisans such as Frederick Wiseman or Albert Maysles, the concept of this movie may have matured into something else entirely. But this was made by Titus Moede, friend of Ray Dennis Steckler and director of LOVE SANDWICH. Therefore, exquisite art is exchanged for damaged resource. In turn, we get a sincere, somewhat affecting mélange of triple flashbacks, schizo edits, gutter folk-pop, and phenomenal fake beards. (Joseph A. Ziemba)
