Fiction. Each of Harold Jaffe's 13 docufictions features a well-known personage who either died of an overdose or was invested in "drugs" to the extent that they contributed to his or her death. Marilyn Monroe, Billie Holiday, Bela Lugosi, Aldous Huxley, Freud, Poe, Lead Belly, Sonny Liston, Diane Arbus, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, and Abbie Hoffman are among those featured. High culture and pop. Dead and ghostly. The narrative dance that Jaffe performs with these apparitions is unexpected, intricate, melancholy, comical, and brilliant in every register.
