JOURNEY INTO THE MIND OF...
UK: ICA Projects
Directors: Fosco Dubini, Donatello Dubini
UK: 92 mins
UK Release Date: 2 May 2003 (Limited Release - London)
Unravelling the enigma of the reclusive Thomas Pynchon (b.1937), one of the most influential but least public writers of our time, the Dubinis' compelling documentary makes spirited use of archive photographs, historical documents, news footage and interviews with Pynchon's friends and fanatics.
Spiralling around themes of paranoiac conspiracies and mind-control experiments, culminating in an account of an extraordinary lookalike event and the devastating CNN news footage of Pynchon snatched on the streets, the film presents a wonderful feast of Pynchonalia served up with a sense of humour and a generous helping of music by the Residents.
