Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One

Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One
  • 1968
  • US
  • 70 min
  • Directed by: William Greaves
  • Written by: William Greaves
  • Cast: Patricia Ree Gilbert, Don Fellows, William Greaves

Greaves' one-of-a-kind fiction-documentary hybrid is three films in one: a screen test for a movie, a documentary about the making of the screen test, and a third documentary about the making-of documentary, in which Greaves himself plays the apparently unfocused and inept director. The result is a hair-raisingly circular and uproariously funny comment on what we now recognise as reality TV, made 30 years before the fact. One of the rediscovered masterpieces of the American avant-garde.
