Insignificance: The Criterion Collection

Four unnamed people who look and sound a lot like Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Joe DiMaggio, and Joseph McCarthy converge in one New York City hotel room for this compelling, visually inventive adaptation of Terry Johnson's play, from director Nicolas Roeg (Walkabout, The Man Who Fell To Earth). With a

combination of whimsy and dread, Roeg creates a fun-house-mirror picture of cold war America that questions the nature of celebrity and plays on a society's simmering nuclear fears. Insignificance is a delirious, intelligent drama, featuring magnetic performances by Michael Emil as "the professor," Theresa Russell as "the actress," Gary Busey as "the ballplayer," and Tony Curtis as "the senator."
