THE PETTIFOGGER

Directed by Lewis Klahr
United States, 2011
Avant-Garde

Synopsis

A year in the life of an American gambler and con man circa 1963. A diaristic 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.
