Memories of a Forgotten Fight is an experimental take on that behemoth of a hole in history: a hybrid between documentary and fiction, a weaving of stories in which stylised historical recreations, interview attempts with unwitting present-day US citizens (one of them wondering in all seriousness whether the fight was fought over rice- eating preferences!), oral history and animation all have their place.

A MARRIED COUPLE is a classic; a seminal movie in the Direct Cinema movement, in its heyday during the late 1960's. Light years before all this "reality TV" dreck, documentary filmmakers were doing projects without the traditional narration to the camera, or voiceovers.. just attempting to capture things as they naturally unfold. The nice dichotomy of this practice of course, is just how much of this items is true that they are putting on film?Be it with a Bolex in the 1960's or a mini-DV camera today, the primary argument has not changed. The camera is still too strong a software to ignore if it is in plain view. Sometimes with Direct Cinema, these projects seem like the director is saying, "the film's rolling; place on a present for me". Perhaps A MARRIED COUPLE is the greatest example of this feeling. Whatever the case, it remains a hilarious, shocking, upsetting, bristling piece of work. In 90 mins (with footage culled from months of staying with this couple), we watch the disintegration of the marriage between Billy and Antoinette Edwards. The method in which Allan Lord captures these desperate moments (and these two war about everything, trust me) is unequalled in standard narrative film, except perhaps works by John Cassavetes. The fact that these two are screaming at every another over each tiny thing is hilarious theatre at first, but the result later becomes saddening. Plus, one cannot support but wonder if the intrusion of the movie team is partially responsible for their own marriage breakdown.Taking the theory, "put on a present for me", do the Edwards' start to trust their own feelings that they vent on film? Several pieces of cinema constantly use the viewer's ability to discern reality within such a natural setting. And although the movie is a documentary (albeit perhaps not wholly fully one), it does have a standard A to B narrative progression-- as it starts with sweetness and kissing, and then just declines from there. On those terms, this might be remarkable for just being a documentary about a marriage coming apart. However, once one learns that these scenes were not shot sequentially, a entire fresh set of problems arise. What are we really seeing?But still, A MARRIED COUPLE is an astonishing piece of work which is worthy for its topics matter as well as its paradoxical approach. No another movie illustrates late 1960's suburban milieu with such sad poetry. You understand how and why folks receive into ruts by being married to folks they can no longer stand, in these posh surroundings. The unhappiness of executive life outside of the office is laid bare. (In hindsight this movie anticipated the escalating divorce stats of the 1970's.) How on World did this couple place their believe in Allan Lord to reveal themselves so fully to the camera? In one astonishing scene, Antoinette reveals to a co-worker over lunch that she had an extra-marital affair!! (Imagine Billy when he saw the complete film.)I don't trust that the Edwards' are telling anything or behaving in any fashion that they do not mean, but I would guess that the presence of the camera nonetheless heightened their emotional outbursts. In any case, they are damned convincing actors, and A MARRIED COUPLE remains an unforgettable, hair-raising movie that also speaks layers about movie language.
Not just a time capsule, although that's part of it; this is a full-color archive of the physical features of middle-class Torontohood in the late sixties. The private details, though, are private details. Documentarian as nosey house guest, Lord plants himself among a very tenuous couple, their infant and their dog, and creates the type of inevitably self-conscious psychodrama that is actually familiar to us as post-Osbornes pop culturites. The outside eye seems to make an uncontrollable urge to embarrass themselves, just to create things interesting. But it's not just the merciful one-sitting format that makes this rendition of the tendency more bearable. It's King's (and of course camera guy Richard Leiterman's) eyes and ears; they give the hyperbole enough room to breathe, with all interactions seen through to some type of conclusion instead of punched up in post. As a result, the raw intimacy routine has enough shape and rhythm and continuity to draw you into the argument instead of driving you to the remote.
Like a documentary ver of SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE, this is a stunning portrait of a couple falling to pieces. Billy and Antoinette let Lord and his cameraman into some of the most personal moments of their lives. The usual questions arise about how much the participants are putting on a present for the camera (they'd have to have some exhibitionist qualities to even accept to this) and apparently some of it is not in chronological sequence, but ultimately I feel that what we're getting is real, even if perhaps slightly heightened. The fact is that their arguments often greatly resemble ones I've had with my wife, which perhaps doesn't bode well for my own marriage (I love ya, honey!) but it definitely has the sting of truth to it. Ridiculously tiny disagreements become heavy wars under the weight of buried, and not-so-buried, resentment. Which is not to stay that it's everytime fight in the Edwards household... they have their tender moments. But perhaps some relationships cannot be salvaged. A very intense, gripping movie that drew me in completely.
