Milos Forman's unjustly neglected masterpiece, his first American film combines the improvisational, comic genius of his films in Czechoslovakia (Firemen's Ball, Loves of a Blonde") in an American milieu. The subject of "Taking Off" is the generation gap, as Jeanne, the 16-year old daughter, takes off for the hippie life in New York City, leaving her parents Larry and Lynne join a society for the parents of runaway kids. With a hilarious pot-smoking sequence at the Society's annual convention. Sheer comic brilliance.
