Venice Film Review: 'One Day Since Yesterday: Peter Bogdanovich and the Lost American Film'

In this new century of splintered viewing and distribution options, it’s harder than ever for modern films to be truly lost — but our regard for them can be, which is what director Bill Teck argues nearly happened to Peter Bogdanovich’s dry-but-sparkling 1981 romantic comedy “They All Laughed.” How it fell from public and critical view, only to be retrieved by a passionate new generation of champions, is the ostensible subject of Teck’s enjoyable if inelegantly assembled doc “One Day Since Yesterday: Peter Bogdanovich and the Lost American Film,” though it expands into a chatty examination of the filmmaker’s post-peak career, and the emotional aftermath of his ill-fated affair with “Laughed” star Dorothy Stratten. 492 more words
