David Holzman's Diary

DVD - 2011
Average Rating:
Rate this:
In this 1967 faux-documentary, a man tries to put all of his life experiences on celluloid. His insistence upon poking his camera where it isn't wanted results only in irritation, alienation, and a few bloody noses. As Holzman's life (and his film) becomes harder to follow, the audience is liable to be as confused as David, especially if they make the mistake of taking this whole thing seriously. Filmed like cinema verite, it's a well-disguised fiction about the deceptions of cinematic illusionism and the lies people tell themselves in order to live.

Perhaps the "first" Reality TV. Some great street interactions. Interesting how "David" remains oblivious to how the camera affects his life.
