Chameleon Street

Chameleon Street ★★★★★

philosophical, original, surreal, stylish, humorous, honest, based on a true story. my favorite black film ever. it’s the closest we’ve got to a movie version of Ellison’s Invisible Man. class, race, romance, and social position are rarely whipped up and scrambled into this kind of compound of finesse and absurdity. One of the all time indies, it’s such a shame Wendell B. Harris never got to make another film, he was a true creative talent. Such unique existentialist French new wave influence too, in the dialogue, art direction, and freedom in the screenplay. Criminally under seen and under acknowledged.
