Three by Robert Greene
The line between performance and reality is scrambled to provocative effect in the adventurous nonfiction psychodramas of Robert Greene. While the bravura hybrid works ACTRESS and KATE PLAYS CHRISTINE are slippery, multilayered investigations of the craft of acting, Greene’s latest film, BISBEE ’17, uses historical reenactment to connect a shameful chapter of American history to the country’s present. Opening up complex questions about the very meaning of “truth” in documentary, Greene’s fascinating films are alchemical collaborations between director and subject in which artifice is a means to reach authentic human insight.
