Somewhere on the line between interview and interrogation are:
No Lies (Mitchell Block, 1974)
Portrait of Jason (Shirley Clarke, 1967)
One fictional and one "real," both demonstrate an ambiguous and uneasy
relation to their subject - with hints of both sympathy and hostility.
In Jason's case, it's more an "egging on" than a structured interview.
No Lies has the premise of a man filming a woman friend as they
converse, but becomes more of an interrogation as it goes on.
Andrew Noren's film Say Nothing (1965), which I know only by
description, may also be of interest in this regard.
