Insignificance

Insignificance

The Actress is ogled while The Ballplayer impotently watches. The Professor is harassed by The Senator. Lives cross and time collapses, an eternity at 8:15am. Terry Johnson’s meditation on fame and relationships in post-WW2 America, using archetypes and stand-ins for Monroe, Einstein, McCarthy and DiMaggio, becomes an even more complex series of Roeg’s observations on time and interpersonal (dis)connection.
