The title chosen by Pauline Kael for this classic collection of her film writings reflects a period of prolonged and sensitive commitment to a medium which was going through an era of profound and exciting change. The late sixties saw great cultural and political upheavals reflected in such films as Jean-Luc Godard's Weekend, Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Marco Bellocchio's China is Near. This volume also deals with films that are now recognized classics: Funny Girl, Bullitt, Barbarella, and Yellow Submarine, among others.
In Going Steady, Pauline Kael has kept her reviews in sequence so that the reader can follow not only what was evolving in films during a crucial period of social and aesthetic change at the end of the sixties, but follow the reviewer's developing responses. This volume also contains her legendary essay "Trash, Art and the Movies."
