Three by James Toback
James Toback is a true maverick filmmaker whose energetic and adventurous films often cross the line between fiction and documentary while fearlessly probing the big issues: sex, death, race, money, and the very nature of existence. His latest film, Seduced and Abandoned, is a quasi-documentary about a trip by Toback and Alec Baldwin to the Cannes Film Festival in the hopes of raising money for a film project. In conjunction with a special screening of the new film, Toback will also present two of his most provocative earlier films, Black and White and The Big Bang.
