Touchingly honest road-picture with Art Carney as Harry, a septuagenarian widower who, after eviction from his NY apartment, and dissatisfaction with living with his children, takes a pilgrimage across the country with his cat Tonto in tow. Excellent performances from Carney (Best Actor) with support from Ellen Burstyn, Larry Hagman and Geraldine Fitzgerald. Mazurky transfers the high level of Greenfeld's (and his own) screenplay with an essential 70's humor-filled drama about the importance of life, shedding one's past and philosophical communication. I suspect cinema history will continue to look very favorably upon this film and it is highly recommended.

I like this film and this DVD a lot. The anamorphic and progressive image is dark, but true with no manipulations - subtitles and audio are very good and it has a real filmic appearance. Mazursky's commentary is excellent - very honest with lots of fond remembrances - he laughs through some of it. This is a steal at under $10 US. We strongly recommend. out of
