I recall a film called "The End of the Art World" from 1971 by Alexis
Krasilovsky, I believe, which featured several hilariously
irreverent interviews. One shouted across busy streets, and one with
I think Leo Castelli where someone is typing (LOUDLY) with a manual
typewriter in the room and the camera jerkily pans to the rythm of
the typing and then whip pans back when the typewriter bell rings and
the carriage is returned.
There is also the surreal interview parody in Fellini's "Spirits of
the Dead" chapter. Terance Stamp as Toby Dammit, drunk and
hallucinating while being pummeled by banalities.
