I think db was referring to the subject matter of the film; the
"George" character's actors all leave him halfway through production on
his "nudie" movie.
I have Paul Sharits's Bad Burns (1982) in mind. "Outtakes" from his
film/installation 3rd Degree. Also, Bradley Eros's essay in the most
recent Millennium Film Journal describes a program he was involved with
in which accidents were sought after in a live projection event
featuring the wrong gauge of film threaded through projectors,
burning/melting film, projectors turned upside-down, etc. There, I
guess the plan A WAS the plan B. Or maybe there wasn't really any plan.
When failure = success, maybe the idea of "accidental" isn't quite
