Early Cazale
6 March 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

This is a curious, surreal 10 minutes black and white short. The only reason it arouses interest is because it features a young John Cazale credited as a beatnik.

The beatnik runs around New York with battery cables and tries to blow things up like Yankee stadium, apple pie, a water hydrant.

The rest of the short is just a collection of silent surreal scenes or sketches accompanied by some classical music. I had no idea what it was all about or what it all meant. I only watched it for Cazale.
