Also plays Wednesday, May 16 as part of the Evening with Robert Downey Sr.
(1968) dir Robert Downey Sr., Robert Soukis w/Downey, Allen Abie, Lawrence Wolf, Linda Diesen [46 min]
Downey takes his camera and microphone onto the streets (and into some bedrooms) for a look at Manhattan’s singles scene of the late sixties. Of course, that’s not all: No More Excuses cuts between this footage and the fragmented tale of a time-traveling Civil War soldier, a rant from the director of the fictional Society for Indecency to Naked Animals, and other assorted improprieties. – Criterion Collection
Two Tons of Turquoise to Taos Tonight
(1975) dir Robert Downey Sr. w/Elsie Downey [56 min]
“A film without a beginning or an end,” in Downey’s words, this Dadaist thingamajig—a never-before-seen, newly reedited version of the director’s 1975 release Moment to Moment (also known as Jive)—is a rush of curious sketches, scenes, and shots that takes on a rhythmic life of its own. It stars Downey’s multitalented wife, Elsie, in an endless succession of off-the-wall roles, from dancer to cocaine fiend. – Criterion Collection
