James Toback’s ruminations about the Meaning of It All (1989), as expressed through conversations with a wide variety of people of different ages and ethnic backgrounds—artists, athletes, businesspeople, students, the film’s producer, and so on. Needless to say, sex and death are two of the main topics on the table. Toback has found various ways of keeping both the talking heads and the ways they’re shown fairly diversified, and the results hold on as well as a good TV talk show—though as in his fiction features (Fingers, Exposed) Toback’s inflated sense of what he’s about occasionally gets in the way.
