Robert Kramer’s Masterpiece Milestones Plays This Weekend At The Anthology Film Archives


Thirty years before Sacha Baron Cohen cat-walked the thin line between documentary and fiction in the name of comedy, the great radical filmmaker Robert Kramer — with co-director John Douglas — interwove the two modes to deliver his 1975 masterpiece Milestones, in the name of the revolutionary ideals of the late 1960′s.
