A REAL DEAD RINGER FOR LOVE. VIDEO FOOL FOR LOVE
By Adrian Martin
Video Fool For Love is constructed from a video diary. We are told that, for ten years, Gibson carried around a compact video camera and filmed everything happening to him and around him – conversations, travels, car rides, sex, arguments: a lot of juicy, action-packed stuff. Most of the ten years fly by in a flash at the start, until we settle into the complications of a particularly difficult love triangle, when Robert is in his early 40s. First, there’s Robert and his troubled lover April, who flies off to stay in England. While she’s gone, Robert meets Gianna and they begin a wild relationship.
