Norman Mailer is remembered for many things-his novels, his essays, his articles, his activism, his ego. One largely forgotten chapter of his life, however, is his late-sixties, headlong, kamikaze-style plunge into making experimental films. These rough-hewn, self-financed, largely improvised metafictions are works of madness and bravado, all starring Mailer himself and with technical assistance from cinema verite trailblazers D. A. Pennebaker and Richard Leacock. The films include Maidstone, Wild 90 and Beyond the Law. Stars include Rip Torn, Norman Mailer, Buzz Farber, Mickey Knox, Francis Xavier Pope, George Plimpton
