Directed by Jonathan Demme | 1987

With Spalding Gray

"A portrait of genocide as perceptive as it is original, as scary as it is scathingly funny"
—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Legendary raconteur Spalding Gray weaves a spellbinding tale about his experiences in Southeast Asia in Jonathan Demme’s film version of his acclaimed one-man show. Brilliantly synthesizing the personal and political, Gray’s monologue moves disarmingly between the comic (his description of a Thai brothel) and the serious (his growing awareness of genocide in Cambodia), aided by music by Laurie Anderson.
