The narrative is lifted from James Ellroy’s book of the same name. Just as the book collides fact and fiction through the genre of conspiracy theory, the video collides images from documentary footage of Las Vegas with Ellroy’s narrative. The small edit produces a chapter of the book – taking the language of conviction and making it more violent. Significantly, the work draws our attention to the way in which we convince other people and produce believable narratives. This is a mixture of realism – documentary style footage and high drama; not fantasy, but rather the drama of will, force and power.
