Screening of Philip Roth, without Complexes
February 29, 2012
On Sunday, March 4, and Tuesday, March 6, New York’s Film Society of Lincoln Center will be screening the documentary Philip Roth, without Complexes, directed by William Karel. This documentary, based on over 10 hours of interview footage with journalist Livia Manera, is a surprisingly frank portrait of this major American author who’s as popular in France as in the U.S. Roth speaks candidly abut his upbringing, the success and the fallout from Portnoy’s Complaint, and his feelings about aging in this illuminating work by French documentarian William Karel (The World According to Bush, My Dad Is Into Terrorism). For more information about the screening, visit the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s website at http://www.filmlinc.com/films/on-sale/juliette-greco-without-limits-philip-roth-without-complexes.
