Yonkers and Bonkers

Lost in Yonkers and The Last Flapper border on real theatrical achievement. Neither should be missed for their inspired moments and exceptional performances. At the same time, by containing flaws and disappointments not seen in greater works, they present no easy answer to that ultimate inquiry: good or bad? Perhaps the only fair response is that both are surely good enough.
