Yvonne Rainer – Film About a Woman Who… (1974)

Yvonne Rainer’s landmark film is a meditation on ambivalence that plays with cliché and the conventions of soap opera while telling the story of a woman whose sexual dissatisfaction masks an enormous anger. (Zeitgeist FIlms)

Rainer once asked, “Can the presentation of sexual conflict in film or the experience of love and jealousy be revitalized through a studied placement or dislocation of clichés borrowed from soap opera or melodrama?” Her second feature—in which a tempestuous affair is related via a combination of intertitles, captions, voiceover, still images, and even a few sonatas—provides an unforgettable answer in the affirmative, its mode of address, like its revolving cast, in a constant state of flux. Expanding upon the strategies found in Lives of Performers, it’s a film of provocative incongruities, cryptic compositions, and terrific derangements of established tropes. (Film at Lincoln Center)
