(Peter Bog­danovich, 1971) 1.20am, Film4

The Guardian - The Guide - - Tv Films -

It’s sur­pris­ing that city-boy Bog­danovich crafted such a note­per­fect por­trait of US small­town life. Adapted from Larry McMurtry’s novel and set in a hot and dusty Texas town, two boys (Jeff Bridges, Ti­mothy Bot­toms) fall out over a girl (Cy­bill Shep­herd). Howard Hawks’s Red River is the last book­ing at the run­down cinema: a fit­tingly ele­giac de­tail.
