"The Fragile Truth"


Year: 1967
Country: United States
Language: English
Number: 461
Director: Bruce Connor

Bruce Conner's short film, Report, is an avant-garde documentary that focuses on the day of President John F. Kennedy's assassination in Dallas of 1963. What we see is a bunch of news footage of that day, plus some unrelated footage, that features previous wars, advertisements for american consumer goods and even the famous scene from James Whale's Frankenstein where the doctor creates the monster. The soundtrack features a bunch of news reports from that day, which makes it more intense to hear how that situation evolved. It's a pretty interesting little film. A film that haunts us, with its repeating and unconventional imagery. Thumbs up.

Grade: B+
