PART 2: “MR. FREEDOM”

just what the doctor ordered — a little more freedom…

It was shot at the end of ’67 and the beginning of ’68, but the French government censored it for nine months, thinking it was about May ’68.  So it didn’t come out until ’69.  Anyway, it was completely foreign to the whole movie scene here in France.  I guess my posisiton is pretty marginal everywhere — then and now.

— William Klein 1988

“MR. FREEDOM” 1969 directed by William Klein

once impossible to find, now part of Criterion’s box set “The Delirious Fictions of William Klein” along with “Who Are You Polly Magoo?” and “The Model Couple”…
