It will be clear to any viewer of Clown that Gordon's story is not one of grand adventure played out under the big top, but rather one revealed in those smaller events that incrementally tell the tale of a life. After ten years in a psychiatric hospital (a place he denounces as a "concentration camp"), Gordon decided that becoming a clown might ward off the sadness of his many years spent there. Clown offers a stark and decidedly unsentimentalized portrait of a man who takes to the stage according to his own dictates.
