The Classic Black Cinema Series rescues this upper middle class comedy of sex and manners from obscurity. A mildly surreal meditation on art and marriage, Losing Ground treads territory also explored in the work of Eric Rohmer — smart successful characters who blossom when they explore their unfulfilled desires. This 1982 flick was director Kathleen Collin’s only feature film. She died in 1988. Horror fans will spot Duane Jones of the original Night of the Living Dead.
