FRIDAY NIGHT-

SATURDAY NIGHT-

By MICHAEL JULIAR
At The Campus Theater
"Oh, yes! It's a wonderful mo-
vie, but it's so depressing. That's
why I wouldn't recommend it."
I have heard this remark and
variations on it so many times
by people who have already seen
"The Pawnbroker", that I can't
help wondering into what sort of
unrealistic coziness they have hud-
dled their minds. There are many
wringing and taut emotional mo-
ments in the film when director
Sidney Lumet intelligently and
carefully pulls out off of the
stops and puts on a cathartic

roller-coaster. But there is noth-
ing "depressing" about "The
Pawnbroker." There is nothing in
it that should keep our friends
away from it.
What is often called "depress-
ing" is a certain kind of tragic
emotionalism that becomes too
thick only rarely. For instance,
the scene when the innocent, very
sad looking and very pregnant
young girl tries to pawn what
she thinks is a diamond ring from'
her missing boy friend is, for all
its possible truth, too heavy and
over-wrought, blasting the audi-
ence back with a blowtorch when
a match would do. But this is
rare. The other scenes like this,
hitting the screen in a staccato
fashion, are more effective be-

cause Lumet has a surer control
of the situation.
The story of "The Pawnbroker"
is that of a man who lived through
the German horrors of the thir-
ties and forties as a Jew and
lost his family, who came to
America, a completely withdrawn
soul who shunned all social de-
cencies, even as a pawnbroker inE
the Spanish Harlem section of New
York, and who cane"to the agon-
izing realization of what he had
done to himself, and others,
through several incidents culmi-
nating in the murder of an as-'
sistant in his shop. It is a very
simple story that could become
a sentimental gush of life Amer-
ican filmmakers usually present
us with. But it doesn't, though it'

sometimes borders on it.
The strongly emotional mo-
ments, such as the opening slow-
motion idyllic scenes of the pawn-
broker's family in Germany, the
parallel love scenes of the pawn-
broker and his assistant, the pros-
titute's disrobing scenes that
brings back the pawnbroker's
most excruciating memories of the
concentration camp, the subway
scene when he recalls how he lost
his son in a cattle car packed with
"deportees," and finally, the rob-
bery, shooting, death and impale-
ment scene are searing examples
of how Lumet can bring emotion
to a head and, at the very end
of the film, to an excruciating
cathartic head.
I must add here that the im-
i palement is not a crucifixion. It
is a combination of the pawnbrok-
er's need to inflict injury on him-
self for all the injury he has done
to men, and especially his assist-
ant (the thought of crucifixion
follows this line of thinking, but
cannot displace it) and the need
of the director to bring the ten-
sion of the previous five minutes
to its climactic head and then re-
lease it in one precipitous blow.
I doubt if there was one person in
the audience who did not wring his
hands so hard under the tension
that they were not cold and
clammy when he left the theatre.
