DAVID HOLZMAN’S DIARY

Cinéma vérité is someone turning on a camera and capturing what happens. Some of what happens might be predetermined, especially in terms of narrative, to ensure a reaction. Sometimes, cinéma vérité filmmakers take themselves too seriously. Using their own techniques, Jim McBride's satiric DAVID HOLZMAN'S DIARY takes the pretentious side of these filmmakers to the cleaners. Hooray! (Joseph A. Ziemba)
