Insignificance

Edition 1985
109' - 1985 - Comedy - Dialogue: English
Director: Nicolas Roeg Composer: Stanley Myers, Hans Zimmer With: Gary Busey, Tony Curtis, Theresa Russell
Four 1950's cultural icons (Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Joe DiMaggio and Senator Joseph MacCarthy) who conceivably could have met and probably didn't, fictionally do in this modern fable of post-WWII America. Visually intriguing, the film has a fluid progression of flash-backs and flash-forwards centering on the fictional Einstein's current observations, childhood memories and apprehensions for the future.
