Puzzle of a Downfall Child (Blu-ray)
Directed by Jerry Schatzberg
Jerry Schatzberg, the acclaimed director of The Panic in Needle Park, Scarecrow, The Seduction of Joe Tynan, Honeysuckle Rose and Street Smart, made his directorial debut with this brilliantly innovative and fascinating drama starring screen legend Faye Dunaway (The Thomas Crown Affair, Chinatown, Network, Mommie Dearest). Lou Andreas Sand (Dunaway), a beautiful but disturbed young woman whose life has fallen into a downward spiral including drug use and a nervous breakdown, lives alone at a windswept beach cottage. Fashion photographer turned director Aaron Reinhardt (Barry Primus, Boxcar Bertha) visits the former model and records their conversations, planning to develop her story, a life of delusion and lies, into a film. The stellar cast includes Roy Scheider (Jaws), Viveca Lindfors (Moonfleet) and Barry Morse (The Changeling).
