Part of Fun City: New York in the Movies 1967–75
Saturday, August 17, 2013, 5:30 p.m.

Dir. Alan Arkin. 1971, 110 mins. 35mm. With Elliot Gould, Marcia Rodd, Vincent Gardenia. Another sort of urban horror movie, no less apocalyptic but more overtly funny, Alan Arkin’s adaptation of Village Voice cartoonist Jules Feiffer’s caustic play (a flop on Broadway, a hit in London and a smash off-Broadway revival) was co-produced by its star, erstwhile Brooklyn chorus boy Elliott Gould. That Little Murders was originally to be directed by Jean-Luc Godard gives some idea of its world view.
