Joe Gibbons’ dry humor comes across in obsessive rants that scrape the bottom of a monomaniacal mind, spilling forth with fantasies of power, destruction, and death. In this selection of recent videos, Gibbons reveals the depth of his psychosis — confiding his sins (endless drug and alcohol abuse, shoplifting, cheating on his parole officer) and teaching us how to make a movie. Confessions of a Sociopath Part 1 (2001 – 2006); Confessions of a Sociopath Part 2 (These Are My Sins) (preview, 2006); The Producer (2005, Tony Conrad with Joe Gibbons and Louise Bourque); and Doppelganger (2006). Co-presented with the Video Data Bank. 2001-2006, various directors, USA, ca. 85 min, video.
