(1970, Norman Mailer) A political fundraiser on the eponymous Hamptons estate goes improvisationally amok, as Rip Torn attacks candidate Mailer with a hammer, and mayhem, ear-biting, and real names ensue, while cameraman Pennebaker keeps rolling. Approx. 110 min. 35mm.
“Novelist Norman Mailer's Maidstone is a bombardment of sense impressions and fragments of fantasy, a collage that its author has quite aptly subtitled ‘a mystery.’”
“Simply 110 minutes of pure Megalomailer.”
– Time Out (London)
(1971, D.A. Pennebaker, Richard Leacock) Godard’s 1AM (One American Movie), with Rip Torn in a Brownsville classroom, Leroi Jones on the street, Jefferson Airplane on a rooftop. Abandoned by JLG, repurposed into 1PM (One Pennebaker Movie). Approx. 90 min.
“A glorious time capsule—of late ’60s you-are-there filmmaking, of a politically fraught moment, and of an era’s iconoclastic hero losing the thread and his marbles.”
– David Fear, Time Out New York
