Puzzle of a Downfall Child
Director: Jerry Schatzberg - USA · 1970 - 103 mins · HD (1.85:1) - R16
Starring: Faye Dunaway (Lou Andreas Sand), Barry Primus (Aaron Reinhardt), Viveca Lindfors (Pauline Galba), Barry Morse (Dr Galba), Roy Scheider (Mark)

Schatzberg drew inspiration from his background as a fashion photographer by using conversations with model Anne Saint-Marie as a foundation for his engrossing story of a washed up model gradually losing hold on reality.

“Schatzberg’s first feature is a stylistic tour de force that displays his consummate mastery of the medium, employing a fractured narrative style that freely intermingles flashbacks and fantasized events with the present and brilliantly manipulates the sound track to maximize the carefully calibrated sense of disorientation. In her revealing performance as the fragile model, Faye Dunaway strikingly personifies Schatzberg’s fascination with the disenfranchised that will extend to his subsequent films.”
