5.0 out of 5 stars We two boys together clinging, 20 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Want To Be Famous (1976) (short) (VHS Tape)
A 1976 film, this short (approx. 37 minutes) is a hymn to the friendship - love really - between two boys. Steve (Stephen Bratt) hates sports, finds school merely oppressive and bunks off when he can. An introverted kid, he lives very much an inner life. Home life is hardly less oppressive than school, his father being both unsympathetic and uncomprehending towards his son. Steve finds solace in violent fantasies, and even more in his unbreakable friendship with fellow loner, Stuart (Stuart Elliot). The heart of this film is a beautiful segment in which we follow Steve and Stuart playing together over a few golden hours. Wonderful naturalistic performances from the cast and brilliantly creative direction from Lambert (such as the use of drawings at the beginning and end of segments) make this a truly superlative short film. Highly recommended.

A DVD collection of all three of Lambert's films entitled "Three Films by Roger Lambert", with proper DVD quality, is now in production with a release date of 30 September 2013. It will be available solely through Amazon.
