"The best American film I have seen in 20 years." -- Jean Renoir
Who is Goldstein? Is he the funny old tramp who emerges from Lake Michigan to wander the streets of Chicago? The incarnation of the prophet Elijah sent back to help lost souls? Or, simply the name on a side of a truck? A fractured fable for our frenzied times, Goldstein is an irreverent portrait of modern urban life in the early 1960s.
The feature film debut of talented director Philip Kaufman (The Right Stuff, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Quills), Goldstein shared the Prix de la Nouvelle Critique at the 1964 Cannes Film Festival with Bertolucci´s Before the Revolution. An early example of American independent filmmaking, the film is a funny, warm-hearted postcard from an important time in American cinema.
Filmed on location in Chicago, Goldstein stars veteran character actor Lou Gilbert (Viva Zapata!, The Great White Hope) and includes appearances by notable cultural figures of the city, including author Nelson Algren, Second City founder Del Close, and original cast member Severn Darden. Other participants contributing to the pedigree of this indie gem include filmmaker Adolfas Mekas (Hallelujah the Hills), brother of experimental director and longtime actor Ben Carruthers, star of John Cassavetes´ Shadows.
