Abstract:

"Following the lives of a group of narcissistic individuals intent on making a film in a scene dominated by video-sex, mausoleums, and the corrupt atmosphere of an elegant, old-fashioned hotel, Speaking Parts is a gripping and compulsive study of the destruction of personality in an age of alienating technology, an unsettling look at those who produce as well as consume images, and elegantly polished, crafted and highly bizarre. This comprehensive volume brings together the complete script of Speaking Parts with facsimiles of Egoyan's production notes and sketches...creating an intimate and illuminating view of the filmmaker and the filmmaking process."--Back cover.
