Finding The Father Narrated by The Wild Man
28 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Only Living Boy in New York is brilliant as it works on a seemingly infinite number of levels.

Yet at the same time it is a failure because it only succeeds in connecting to the most insightful of the audience.

The paradox is brilliant: we are all in a trance. Private lies of adultery and finance are nuclear weapons that divide people families and the world apart.

Breaking the trance of materialistic suburbia: private lies: fathers and sons: is the Wild Man played by Jeff Bridges the down and out alcoholic father who nails it.

We must find the father.

'When you light the lamp you will see him. He sits behind the door the eyebrows so heavy the forehead so light: lonely in his whole body for you"

The only living boy in New York follows the wild man's lead; breaks his father's secret by sleeping with his father's mistress:( re capitulating his relationship with his father: and ironically the mistress' father)..i

I can't stop thinking about this film which initially felt like My Dinner With Andre: boring: but not with Pierce Brosnan and Jeff Bridges sitting at the table.
