Bound For Glory – 1976 Ashby

Most notable for the first use of Steadicam- and it is an incredible shot tracking from behind through a massive crowd- great shot Almost feels like a remake of grapes of wrath The yellow glaze dustbowl photography is stunning- early precursor to cimino’s heaven’s gate and malick’s days of heaven Like all Ashby films the editing is just superb- careful dissolves The Steadicam and camerawork really is a perfect match for the breeziness of both the narrative and woody’s life and ethos Highly Recommend- HR- top 10 film of 1976 towards the back end of the top 10
