The Pettifogger2011

  • 3.7
A year in the life of an American gambler and con man circa 1963. A diaristic, first person montage full of glimpses, glances, decaying ephemera and elliptical narrative. An abstract crime film and, like many other crime films involving larceny, a sensorial exploration of the virulence of unfettered capitalism. An impressionistic collage film, culled from a wide variety of image and sound sources that fully exploits the hieroglyphic essence of cutouts to ponder what appropriation and stealing have in common.

EXCELLENT ILLUSTRATION OF AMANS LIFE IN THE YEAR 1963. NICE PATCHWORK OF PLACES, THINGS, PEOPLE AND THE OVERALL MOVEMENT OF EVENTS. SAD, REALISTIC STORY OF A LOSER PASSING THRU TIME.

BORING... Relatively static & limited imagery

Could have made its points in a fraction of the time.

Super inspiring way of arranging found imagery to create narratives!
