In case nobody has mentioned this, Warhol's films provide a treasure
trove of unusual interview techniques, from the antagonistic (and
sometimes impossible to understand) interviews with Edie in Poor LIttle
Rich Girl, Outer and Inner Space, and Lupe, among others, to the
elliptically edited interview with Gerard in Bufferin - one of my
I'll also throw in Errol Morris, especially Gates of Heaven, in which
he just allows the camera to run and run and run while his increasingly
uncomfortable subjects grope for things to say (probably wondering why
Morris doesn't cut). Not exactly experimental, but an interesting
example nonetheless - a sort of sadistic application of
cinema-verite/direct cinema principles to the interview.
