Dir. Peter Watkins (1973). Densely edited and largely achronological, Peter Watkins epic portrait of the artist is an essay with actors that has the form and tropes of a doc: direct address, contrapuntal voice-over, casual framing, verite zooms. Typically, Watkins is less interested in Munchs subject matter than the conditions of his existenceit was after this hypnotic, frantic bio-pic that Watkins moved from movies that represented a social scenario to movies that sought to construct one.
