Description: PORTRAIT OF JASON is a film in which Jason Holliday is given the entire screen for an hour and 45 minutes, during which time he makes probably as candid a self-revelation as has been known in the history of motion pictures or literature. And yet, how much is true and how much is a performance? Shirley Clarke’s films were always exploring the border between cinema verité and fiction — and PORTRAIT OF JASON may well be her masterpiece.
