COMING APART (1969)
dir. Milton Moses Ginsberg
starring Rip Torn, Sally Kirkland
Joe (Rip Torn) is a psychologist with issues of his own. Deranged by obsession with an ex-lover, he records his volatile erotic encounters with a series of his female clients in this cinema verite oddity. Shot in stark black-and-white and in voyeuristic hidden camera style inside Joe’s Manhattan flat, this pseudo-cinema verite feature documents his seductive and destructive path of psychological manipulation.
Sundays from the Vault is a series featuring 35mm sources from the G William Jones Film and Video Collection at SMU.
