Tuesday, March 18, 2008
Wanda
Barbara Loden, United States
1970, 102 minutes

“Shot in cinema-verité style on grainy 16mm film stock, Wanda tells the story of the unlikely partnership between a coal-mining wife from Pennsylvania (played with sensitivity and brio by the filmmaker herself), dumped by her husband and the men she met while drifting, and a petty crook on the rebound (Michael Higgins), who convinces her to pull a major ‘bank job’ with him.” –Bérénice Reynaud, Senses of Cinema
