American Dreams Lost and Found (1984)
American Dreams is chock full of concrete, discrete elements that comprise an American iconography of the past three decades. The film encourages a kind of perverse nostalgia for ‘the good old days’: Nixon’s ‘you don’t have Nixon to kick around any more’; Elvis’ response to questions about his gyrating style and the rumour that once he shot his mother; Patty Hearst’s ‘Tania’ statement; Senator Ribicoff’s reference to ‘Gestapo tactics in the streets of Chicago’. All of which is punctuated by the music of the period and set against a composite image of Hank Aaron memorabilia (arranged chronologically, 1954-76, the span of the champion home-run hitter’s major league career), and the sordid diary jottings of the would-be assassin, Arthur Bremer.
