Directed by Christian Doherty. Filmed: 1974/Completed: 2009. Recently rediscovered and completed by Tom Soter (who wrote dialogue for Doherty’s random images), this haunting film doesn’t reveal its origins: a collection of bits and pieces from uncompleted projects, home movies, and other sources. It stars Soter as a man apparently reflecting on his life though to give it that much linearity is misleading. It is Doherty crossed with Bunuel and Welles, by way of Sam Peckinpah.
