Directed by Jonathan Demme | 1987

As he did for the Talking Heads in Stop Making Sense, Demme lends his unobtrusive style to this film version of legendary monologist Spalding Gray’s acclaimed one-man show. Focusing on the performer’s recollections of his experiences in Southeast Asia, it’s a captivating showcase for Gray’s tightly wound intensity and alternately sardonic and incisive observations.

Accumulation with Talking plus Water Motor
Dir. Jonathan Demme, 1978, 11min
Demme captures the late choreographer Trisha Brown performing a meta-narrative dance work.
