Critic Reviews for Decay of Fiction
If there were more experimental films as entertaining as The Decay of Fiction, Pat O'Neill's luminous Hollywood ghost story, the notion of a thriving avant-garde cinema might not be so intimidating to the moviegoing public.
The Decay of Fiction is an acid trip of a movie about a piece of Los Angeles history that exists no more: the Ambassador Hotel.
Eight years in the making, this haunting and highly watchable 35-millimeter experimental feature by Pat O'Neill is partly a color documentary on the ruins of Hollywood's Ambassador Hotel and partly a speculative patchwork of its decaying 'fictions'.
The fullest expression of [O'Neill's] career on the periphery of the dream-factory assembly line.
