Nobody Waved Goodbye
Longtime NFB director Don Owen (Ladies and Gentleman, Mr. Leonard Cohen) made his impressive narrative feature debut with this Holden Caulfield-esque story of 18-year-old Peter (Peter Kastner) who is hell-bent on escaping his bourgeois surroundings, but finds trouble in his search for authenticity. In addition to being a clear inspiration for Don Shebib’s 1970s Goin’ Down the Road, the film, with its location shooting and nimble camerawork, makes for a great example of 1960’s ‘Direct Cinema’ and a wonderful Toronto time capsule.
