Maidstone
Directed by Norman Mailer
With Norman Mailer, Rip Torn, Beverly Bentley, Robert Gardiner, Carolyn McCullough
RUN TIME: 105min
35mm
 

The third, wildest and wooliest of Mailer’s guerilla-style, cinéma vérité assaults on convention, Maidstone stars the larger-than-life writer-director as Norman T. Kingsley, an experimental filmmaker whose East Hampton estate is overrun by an unruly collection of actors, intellectuals, reporters, and radicals. Over the course of 105 minutes, Mailer/Kingsley heatedly debates, verbally abuses, sexually harasses, and physically attacks the members of the mob—culminating in a totally un-staged, caught-on-film attack on Mailer by a crazed, hammer-wielding Rip Torn.

 
Untitled
Directed by Norman Mailer
