Product Notes

Nominated for 6 Independent Spirit Awards including Best Picture THE PLOT AGAINST HARRY is the eccentric cult comedy classic that was presumed lost for twenty years until it resurfaced to triumphant festival screenings and rave reviews. With it's retro go-go boots and long black Cadillacs this "astounding and often hilarious spectacle of the late 1960s" (The Nation) was wildly praised by Roger Ebert as "a wonderful oddball comedy... Two enthusiastic thumbs up!... I loved it from beginning to end!" Written and directed with a snap-crackling wit by Michael Roemer (Nothing But a Man) THE PLOT AGAINST HARRY plays like a brilliant cross between a poignantly realistic John Cassavetes film and a prime-era Woody Allen comedy. The film follows the uproarious rise-and-fall of Harry Plotnik (Martin Priest) a once-notorious Jewish gangster who finds his numbers racket slipping away after his release from prison. Under pressure from well-meaning relatives Harry makes an erratic effort to go straight triggering a series of humiliations and petty disasters. Unable to fit into either the criminal or civilian worlds Harry becomes uniquely and irresolutely heroic-a modest modern-day Job fated to be the butt of an endless stream of small-time cosmic jokes. DVD Features: Special "Making Of" Featurette with Director Michael Roemer and Cinematographer/Co-Producer Robert Young; Filmmaker Biographies; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection.
