Google, you have rushed right past mediocre and on into evil. When I began to type black o nothing came up. I had to type in the EXACT WORDS Black Orpheus to get to a website with normal info. WHY?
If you haven’t seen Black Orpheus, invite your responsible teenagers into the room and pop a bunch of popcorn. Several tissue boxes should be ready-to-hand. It is a cultural landmark on the level of Porgy and Bess, yet invisible on the big bad Google.
This story, a retelling of the ancient Greek drama Orpheus and Eurydice, charms and engages us.
I went on a research binge after I saw it. I watched the director’s cut. What a delightful week’s worth of entertainment.
