Plot Summary
Actor, performance artist and playwright Spalding Gray here adapts his successful one-man show for the big screen. Seated behind a desk with little more than a map as a prop, Gray focuses on a small role he had in the 1984 film "The Killing Fields." Discussing life on the set of that film, which follows a photojournalist in Cambodia covering the violent reign of the Khmer Rouge, Gray spins personal memories into a larger story about political unrest and turmoil in Southeast Asia.

  • This curious idea for a movie actually works. show more
