Ontological Cowboy (2005) DVD NTSC, color & b/w, 10 min

Genre: Experimental

With Richard Foreman, Juliana Francis, Tom Ryder Smith and Jay Smith. "The theater is about sex." At least according to Richard Foreman, the father of the Ontological Hysterical Theater. The Ontological Cowboy documents Foreman's invocation of the "manifest destiny" of the avant-garde theater, King Cowboy Rufus strolling down off San Juan Hill with a sigh, waving his handkerchief. Foreman plays himself, and the cast pantomimes his preoccupation. If "the cast and crew suffer alike," it's all for a good cause: the violent rebirth of the American theater, with Foreman as its midwife. --M.L.
