Who Is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me?

Genre: Drama; Starring: Barbara Harris, Dustin Hoffman; MPAA Rating: R

In 1971, Hoffman, director Ulu Grosbard, and playwright Herb Gardner teamed up for this piece of pop surrealism about a famous rock composer’s breakdown. Even then, Who Is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me? seemed pretentious; now, in its video debut, its stream-of-consciousness flashbacks and hallucinations haven’t improved with age. Only when the film settles down for interludes with a lonely singer (Harris) and the composer’s dying father (David Burns) does it affect us. C-
