David Holzmans Diary

New York, NY - July 21, 2011 - Kino Lorber is proud to announce the Blu-ray and DVD release of David Holzman's Diary: Special Edition (1967), one of the most influential films of the 1960s, and an ingenious puzzle movie (Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader) that charts the self-destruction of a media-saturated youth.

This landmark exercise in faux-documentary filmmaking comes to Blu-ray in a new transfer, preserved by the Pacific Film Archive. The Blu-ray is priced at $34.95, and the film is also available on DVD, priced at $29.95. Both are available for prebook on July 19, 2011, with a street date of August 16.

The disc includes three bonus films from director Jim Bride: My Girlfriend's Wedding (1969), Pictures from Life's Other Side (1971) and My Son's Wedding to My Sister-in-law (2008).

As news from the Vietnam War and social unrest blares over the radio, David Holzman (L.M. Kit Carson) unloads comic-neurotic monologues to his 16mm camera. When his relationship with Penny (Eileen Dietz) goes south, he retreats further into moving images, secretly recording his pretty neighbor and even turning his lens to the TV shows he watches. No longer able to deal with life outside celluloid, all of his ties to the real world begin to erode.

This totally delightful satire (NY Times) of a narcissistic artist is also a well-crafted fiction about the deceptions of cinematic illusionism. Early on, Holzman quotes Jean-Luc Godard's famous dictum that "the cinema is truth 24 frames-per-second." As director Jim McBride teaches and Holzman soon learns, it lies just as often.
