This article is an account of two films which had their premiers in 2002: Derrida: The Movie (directed by Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering Kofman) and A Constructive Madness (directed by Jeffrey Kipnis). Both films pose interesting questions concerning what it might mean to represent the very thing which has made representation itself such a problem, while providing examples of what a theorized film practice might look like. They also present us with the question of documentation as they both attempt to participate in the ongoing rehabilitation of the documentary as a filmic genre. This chapter will offer an account of each film while attempting to negotiate an understanding of the issues raised above as it moves between the two works
