Doc of the Week > Anyone wonder about Swinging?

DOCUMENTARY: American Swing

DIRECTORS:  Jon Hart and Matthew Kaufman

REVIEW BY: becky b

This week review comes from a place of personal in-experience.  I’ve never had a “swing” experience.  But, I wondered about it.  Are you like me?  Check out American Swing.  This documentary talks about the rise and fall of the NYC swing clubs in the 1970s.  The film combines interviews with archival video and stills from the time.  Yes – there is plenty of nudity and yes – there are people willing to show naked photos of themselves and then talk about the “good old days”.  You can’t fall asleep during this roller coaster.  Warning : You may wish you were around for the Swinging 70’s after watching this flick.
