Actor

'An actor holds a conversation on a telephone, only his voice is heard. His monologue attempts to draw the audience across the time barrier between when the film was shot and when it is seen, gradually revealing the conversation as a hypothetical one with the audience themselves..

...Also, unconventional juxtapositions are applied in the editing to support this and ultimately pose questions about accepted notions of space/time continuity'
DH & TS, Perspectives on British Avant-Garde Film, Hayward Gallery, 1977.

'...An attempt to locate a broader aesthetic by relating avant-garde issues [of the early 70s] to the generally accepted framework of conventional film-making... [and] could be regarded as a diversion, an interruption, to increasingly predictable concerns in avant-garde film...' DH, 1977.
