Synopsis by Hal Erickson
American filmmaker Jon Jost enjoys tweaking the noses of those who worship at the altar of conventionalism. He is extremely popular with the art-house crowd, thanks to his reliance upon improvised dialogue and fragmented continuities. Made for $35000, Chameleon dissects the world of drug trafficking; the central character, a Los Angeles dope pusher, is played by Bob Glaudini. Every so often, Glaudini pauses long enough to elucidate his thoughts for the benefit of the audience (the actor is given co-writing credit). Highly recommended for Jon Jost's admirers, Chameleon may leave others wondering what all the shouting's about.
