The Amusement Park
Directed by George A. Romero
Recently discovered and restored 46 years after its completion, George A. Romero's The Amusement Park stars MARTIN's Lincoln Maazel as an elderly man who finds himself disoriented and increasingly isolated as the pains, tragedies, and humiliations of aging in America are manifested through roller coasters and chaotic crowds. Commissioned by the Lutheran Society, the film is perhaps Romero’s wildest and most imaginative movie– an allegory about the nightmarish realities of growing older, and an alluring snapshot of the filmmaker’s early artistic capacity and style. The “lost” film was restored in 4k by IndieCollect in New York City.
Rediscovered and restored, this "lost" gem from George A. Romero takes an elderly gentleman to the amusement park for a hellish nightmare.
Cast: Lincoln Maazel
Jesus looks like Romero didn't have the Midas touch after all. this found film should have stayed lost. its boring.
Really existential with a great message
An important message delivered poorly.
Didn't like it.
Better than A Clockwork Orange and The Shining combined.
