Picture This (1990)

95 mins



The times of Peter Bogdanovich in Archer City, Texas.

From George Hickenlooper (Hearts Of Darkness: A Filmmakers Apocalypse about the making of Apocalypse Now) comes this award-winning documentary about the making of another '70s classic The Last Picture Show - director Peter Bogdanovich'a masterpiece - a film that ultimately turned the lives of those involved upside down.

Picture This follows Bogdanovich to Texas where he candidly reflects on the demise of his marriage, his affair with actrss Cybil Shepherd, the murder of his girlfriend Dorothy Stratten, his collaboration with Pilitzer Prize-winning novelist Larry McMurtry, the making of the disastrous sequel Texasville, the bitter controversy surrounding the making of both films in McMurtry's hometown, and the personal traumas suffered by the cast: crises which bore an uncanny resemblance to the characters they portrayed.

Picture This both humorously and provocatively deconstructs the layers of fiction and reality that went into the turbulent making of Bogdanovich's triumphant work acclaimed as "the greatest film since Citizen Kane."
