Riveting documentary about the early California cable outlet and its ingenious programmer, Jerry Harvey, whose unsettled life and tragic death provide a dramatic framework for the account.

Cassavetes' riveting film not only re-creates the glory days of the Z Channel through a generous offering of film clips and interviews, but also presents a clear-eyed portrait of its creative driving force, Jerry Harvey, and the tragic circumstances of his death.

A marvelous tribute to a heady age.

Film Threat
Had that window been opened just a bit more, Z Channel would be a remarkable film. As is, it's thoughtful and arresting.
