Daniel Kremer on


Released 1969
Distributor Cinerama Releasing

A counterculture take on Bergman’s Wild Strawberries, Kent Lane stars as “Kent”, a young nomad adrift on the California coast while pondering his past and the tragic death of his girlfriend. In spite of his low budget, director Hall Bartlett finagled a great soundtrack featuring Tim Buckley, and Joni Mitchell’s Both Sides Now (sung by Judy Collins). John Simon described the film as “an abomination” and that’s really the only recommendation you need.

About Daniel Kremer

San Francisco filmmaker Daniel Kremer has provided audio commentary tracks for Kino Lorber, Shout! Factory, AGFA, and Scorpion disc releases, and essays for Twilight Time special editions. His acclaimed epic-length film Overwhelm the Sky (2019), adapted from a 1799 American Gothic novel, was screened internationally in classic  roadshow format, complete with overture, intermission, and printed souvenir programs.

Furie: Life and Films was published through Patrick McGilligan's Screen Classics Series in 2015. He is currently under contract at Oxford University Press for the first book about Joan Micklin Silver.
