‘THE CRITIC’–A MEL BROOKS EXPERIENCE

Above is a four minute short made by Mel Brooks and Ernest Pintoff in 1964 called ‘The Critic’. It will explain itself, and very amusingly at that. Inspired by the work of Canadian animator Norman McClaren it features a series of curious visuals accompanied by the grumblings of an aging Jewish film watcher. Mel discusses it in some detail on the latest episode of my podcast ‘Movies Til Dawn’ (www.moviestildawnpodcast.com) which I urge you to listen to, natch. Enjoy!
