Dialogues (2009, 133 min.) by filmmaker Owen Land. Dialogues consists of short vignettes in which different actors portray director Land as he interacts with significant figures and/or composites from his past. Most of the scenarios take place in 1985 after Land returned to Los Angeles after living in Japan for a year, while there are also flashbacks to Land’s life during the ’60s and the sexual revolution.

Watch a documentary on the contentious making of Dialogues.
