Who Killed Bambi,
A man decides to edit a documentary on the 1960s at a remote cabin in the Scottish Highlands. His girlfriend wanders through the bracken, looking for a waterfall, and has encounters with various dead and live animals. If you really, really like the Highlands or you like archival footage from the 1960s, there is plenty of both in this simple, personal film. It even has a soundtrack with Pink Floyd and the Doors' "The End" (the year before "Apocalypse Now"). Some of the archival recordings are unique; such as David Hockney shooting off his mouth, Allen Ginsberg reading at a large hall, an anti-war "living theatre" spin off in London, and a man beating a chicken to death against a piano (seriously). What this film is really about or how it resolves itself is up to you to decide; the last film Whitehead directed.
