Coming Apart features intense performance by Rip Torn as a psychiatrist secretly taping his sexual encounters with patients while he descends into his own madness. A dark, erotic, brooding film much improvised. At the time of its release, reaction was mixed. Then it vanished soon after, to be re-released 20 years later, mostly in Indy Art Houses. Director Milton Moses Ginsburg won much belated praise for his brave film and use of innovative techniques and realistic situations.
Fans of Torn might want to see him as a younger man taking on some challenging roles. Frontal nudity and adult situations. Also with Viveca Lindfors. See a scene from our YouTube upload here!
The DVD also has two special features in documentary style, menus and scene selection. Released by Kino International, it is in letterbox style. Shipping is $3 in the U.S., $5 to Canada and $6 to Europe.
