“For the dispossessed, the excluded, the condemned, fallen from life and loving.” These words are typed across the screen at the outset of THE P-38 PILOT, Bruce Baillie’s experimental video portrait of a former pilot outraged by old age and bitter with regrets.

Chet Baker sings “There Will Never Be Another You” as the filmmaker bids the pilot a peaceful adieu.
