Re: “Charleston: a love letter left us feeling like a third wheel

I'm not sure that I saw anything overly intimate in this "love letter", rather an unabashed affection for our time in this place. While there may be room to quibble with a sequence or two needing to be pared down, that misreads the intention of the piece which falls into the tradition of early silent films and epic films with live orchestration, ie Abel Gance's "Napoleon." It was conceived in such way that would work only with the live score. Without that element it may well have needed to be tightened up, but the live music and huge screen were part of the whole experience helped immeasurably by Nathanson's great eye and kinetic editing, to carry this viewer along, very amiably.
