New York City, 1976. All you need to know: Martin Scorsese, Paul Schrader, Bernard Herrmann, Michael Chapman, Juliet Taylor. The cast: Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster, Albert Brooks, Harvey Keitel, Cybill Shepherd, Peter Boyle, and Steven Prince (Scorsese’s American Boy). Marquees advertising The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, steam rising from the street. De Niro’s Travis Bickle takes poor Cybill on a first date to see the naughty Sometime Sweet Susan at the Lyric on the Deuce. It’s all downhill from there.

BROADWAY BY LIGHT
(William Klein, 1958, 12 minutes, 35mm)
After releasing his brilliant collection of photographs Life Is Good and Good for You in New York, the groundbreaking photographer William Klein embarked on his first experiment in cinema: a gorgeous, abstract collage of the neon signs, ads, and marquees of Manhattan’s Times Square that is considered the “first pop film.”
