Director Jim McBride spoofs cinéma vérité and the documentary form with the story of a young filmmaker (L.M. Kit Carson, who also penned the script) who's obsessed with capturing his own life on camera. In the process, he drives away his girlfriend (Eileen Dietz), who'd rather have her privacy. The Library of Congress added this film to its United States National Film Registry in 1991, citing its cultural, historical and aesthetic significance.
