"Commando Raids on the Nature of Reality"

Gary Rhodes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This essay examines Norman Mailer's theory of the "commando raid" shooting style that guided his film MAIDSTONE (1970). Mailer's own published commentary is compared with the various narrative and aesthetic concessions he had to make during both the highly-improvised production phase and the tightly-controlled post-production phase.
