Real Italian Pizza

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

"Dave Rimmer has quietly placed his camera in the blind spot everyone walks past. A fire engine, lights flashing, stops for the firemen to dash in to get some pizza to take to the fire. ... You haven't been to New York till you've seen REAL ITALIAN PIZZA." - Gerry Gilbert, BC Monthly magazine

"Taken between September 1970 and May 1971, with the unmoving camera apparently bolted to the window ledge, this film, a ten-minute eternity, chronicles what takes place within view of the lens. The backdrop is a typical New York pizza stand, the actors are selected New Yorkers who happened to be there during the half year, the plot is the somewhat sinister aimlessness of life itself." - Donald Ritchie, Museum of Modern Art, NY
