Michael Roemer’s hilarious, deadpan, The Plot Against Harry, is a Jewish mobster masterpiece. Harry Plotnick (Martin Priest), a smalltime NY racketeer just released from prison, gets into the catering biz—a world of call girls, bar mitzvahs, Mafia barbecues, and hotel pajama parties. When a surreal coincidence reunites him with his ex-wife, his grown daughter, and a widening web of family and friends welcome him into their sordid suburban traditions. Originally shelved by Roemer, it reemerged decades later when he overheard a technician laughing hysterically while transferring the film. (USA, 1969, 81 mins, English | Dir. Michael Roemer)
