    It comforts me to know that there are still forgotten gems like this hiding out in 1970.

    Hal Ashby was the Wes Anderson of the 1970s, only I would say his films leaned more toward substance than style. His creative genius was evident from his debut, with The Landlord, a film studded throughout with all these brilliant, subtle moments.

    For example, the scene where William Enders, Sr., drssed as Patton, and Susan's boyfriend, in a full-out black-faced Mr. Bojangles, stare each other down for a solid three seconds at the costume party. Or the long shot where we see the croquet players perfectly motionless in the background. So many brilliant moments that one could easily miss; as such, it's a great film to watch once every few years.
