After years of catching bits here and there, I finally watched this and enjoyed it aside from Nicolas Cage's annoying voice. This isn't bad Coppola by any means and Jim Carrey was pretty funny.

Make no mistake, this IS a student film, with the rough mechanics and conceptual lapses synonymous with student work, but historically and aesthetically, it's a remarkable achievement.It looks and feels very real, but it's approach also seems very alien compared to other films shot in places like Watts. It's tempting to compare it to Italian neorealism, but its hazy lyricism, plotless structure and looser character interactions brings it somewhere between Terrence Malick and John Cassavetes.For all its gritty realism, some stretches move along like a dream, and the eclectic, obscure choices that populate the soundtrack reinforce this sense of surrealism. The most striking sequence involves sheep, some neighborhood kids on a bicycle and Little Walter's "Mean Old World." Describing it in greater detail does it no justice, though, you have to see it for yourself.Again, the film's not a seamless experience - parts of it stumble, and several scenes are too clearly acted and (presumably) scripted, betraying the fact that this really is a student film. The actors' best moments have little to do with dialogue, like a slow dance to "Bitter Earth," filmed nearly in silhouette in static long shot, that erupts in unrequited passion and ends in painful alienation.It's strange that Burnett can be such a beloved figure of African-American filmmaking, yet few African-American films since "Killer of Sheep" share his sensibility. Burnett himself hasn't made many films since then, and virtually all of them are unreleased or wallowing in obscurity. Hopefully this re-issue will change all that.

As I explained in my review for that film as background, I had a semester internship at the Center for the History of American Psychology, an archives/museum on the University of Akron campus, when I was getting my library degree. They had one of the "shock boxes" on display there and I found myself most interested in the social psychology field. Writer/director Almereyda has put some unique touches on this film. There are several well known actors in minor rolls. Peter Sarsgaard is professor Milgram and Winona Ryder is his faithful wife Sasha. Milgram's most famous "obedience experiments" took place in 1961, ten years before the Stanford Prison Experiments. This movie explores those experiments from all sides, but goes beyond them to reveal more about the rest of Stanley Milgram's life. Professor Milgram often breaks the fourth wall to explain the outcome of some situation directly to the audience so that the next scene can move forward more quickly. We are introduced to a few other experiments that Milgram initiated and to Sasha and Stanley's long relationship as equals. There is also a segment where professor Milgram and Sasha visit another professor who had been an inspiration to Stanley in his younger days. The filmmakers use green screens and black-and-white photos of the interior and exterior of this other professor's home to set the scenes. Historians or archivists may find this effect especially fascinating. I have not seen any other filmmaker mix live action and archival materials quite like this before. If you watch this movie, you will be entertained, perhaps disturbed, but you will definitely learn something.
