22. Jerry Lewis
Chris Fujiwara

More than a famous comedian, Jerry Lewis was, in his own phrase, a "total filmmaker". He directed, produced, wrote, and acted in his own visionary films, which the best contemporary French critics recognized as among the most progressive of their time. Lewis's work, characterized by bold innovations in both spoken language and the language of cinema, extends the tradition of American comedy into a modern world dominated by mass media, in which people seek happiness through therapy, drugs, and escape. In this context, identity is always performance, and personality traits can be bought and sold, adopted and discarded at will.
