I was invited to a screening for this film in February,
but couldn't attend. But I will definitely be checking
out this classic film before it closes.
"Charles Burnett's Killer of Sheep takes the immediacy of
Italian neo-Realist cinema and shapes it into a dreamy,
beautiful montage of everyday life in Watts, Los Angeles,
California in the 1970s. The National Society of Film Critics
chose Killer of Sheep as one of the 100 Essential Films
of all time. A National Treasure, Killer of Sheep was
selected for the National Film Registry, but this lost
classic has remained in obscurity for nearly 30 years.
