After watching the fascinating documentary "titucut Follies" i thought i would check out some more work of director Frederick Wiseman. I wish i hadn't. This is Wiseman's first credited short film and it couldn't be more different from the aforementioned film. This fifteen minute mess is nearly impossible to explain because it really makes no sense. It revolves around a few 1970's student types who look like they have just received a camera for the first time and have decided make a movie in their bedroom. It has no structure whatsoever and all i can think is that they were all high at the time. I just hope the next Wiseman film i see is better than this rubbish.
