The Track

USA, 1972 (MIFF 1974)

Director: Richard Sanders Rosenthal

Three people in a family ravage one another verbally in some shrewdly calculated and vicious game-playing—a perverse, however witty, ritual of verbal gymnastics. The film ends, then is repeated. Only this time, it is seen as though on television, accompanied by a laughtrack that transmogrifies piece into "sit-com"—that genr television pap, the situation comedy.
