    Norman Mailer is remembered for many things - his novels, his essays, his articles, his activism, his ego. One largely forgotten chapter of his life, however, is his late-sixties, headlong, kamikaze-style plunge into making experimental films. These rough-hewn, self-financed, largely improvised metafictions are works of madness and bravado, all starring Mailer himself and with technical assistance from cinema verite trailblazers D.A. Pennebaker and Richard Leacock. The fullest realization of his directorial efforts is the blustering, brawling "Maidstone", a shocking sign of the political times in which Mailer plays a filmmaker and presidential candidate who may be the target of an assassination attempt. Along with Mailer's other films of the period - "Wild 90" and "Beyond the Law" - it shows an uncompromising artist in thrall to both himself and a new medium. "Maidstone": Over a booze-fueled, increasingly hectic four-day shoot in the Hamptons, Norman Mailer and his cast and crew spontaneously unloaded onto film this lurid and loony chronicle of U.S. presidential candidate and filmmaker Norman T. Kingsley debating and attacking his hangers-on and enemies. This gonzo narrative, "an inkblot test of Mailer's own subconscious" (Time), becomes something like a documentary on its own making when costar Rip Torn breaks the fourth wall in one of cinema's most alarming on-screen outbursts. "Wild 90": Norman Mailer's first filmmaking effort stars the director and his two longtime creative collaborators Buzz Farber and Mickey Knox as a trio of gangsters holed up in a ramshackle New York apartment, drinking, braying, and fighting. Mailer once claimed he viewed making movies as "free psychoanalysis," and this bristly, stripped-down experiment in improvisation shows a filmmaker baring himself for all to see. "Beyond the Law": Norman Mailer's belief that we're all either police or criminals at heart was the impetus for his second film, which takes place over the course of one feve
