charlierose.jpgSomething has happened to PBS favorite "Charlie Rose." The
erudite conversations and sober intellectualism have been replaced by
an absurd world where illogic, inane dialogues, and open hostility
rule. The one-on-one interview between Charlie and his guest begins as
usual but quickly goes awry, so much so that Charlie is warned that,
somewhere, a man named "Steve" is "not happy." Though this seemingly
random statement might confuse us, Charlie understands it for what it
is -- a threat. But who is "Steve" and why is he angry? And why does
the mere mention of his name stop Charlie cold? Using appropriated
footage from a single episode of "Charlie Rose," filmmaker Andrew
Filippone Jr. creates something both disturbing and farcical in
"'Charlie Rose' by Samuel Beckett."
