Vincenzo Natali’s ‘Nothing’ is about the dangerous power of social structures

Nothing

Written by Andrew Lowery and Andrew Miller

Directed by Vincenzo Natali

Canada, 2003

If Cube (1997) was writer-director Vincenzo Natali’s crack at a gruesome, Sartre/Kafka-tinged Twilight Zone episode, then his 2003 film Nothing is his take on the Theatre of the Absurd, a stripped-down character study about two losers interacting with little more than each other and the vast emptiness of the infinite. It’s as if Waiting for Godot‘s Vladimir and Estragon were farting around one day and discovered that they had the power to edit reality. It’s also a funny and ultimately warm film, the clear product of work made among friends. But as light and comic as it is, there’s plenty of pathos to go around; friendships falter when people change, making the world go away doesn’t help a lick, and even in a fantasy world where you can take yourself completely out of all systems, »

There is such a thing as “pre-critic” movies. These are the films that had a major psychic impact on a writer or thinker way before they have even considered (or even imagined) the possibility of having cinematic sensibilities or intellectual engagement with movies as art-objects. These movies tend to be pop culture touchstones; movies like the first Star Wars film or Ghostbusters or Pulp Fiction are common ones in part because of their ubiquity. But as with all generalizations, there are always outliers and oddities. One of my pre-critic movies, which I saw as a young man of fifteen on Canadian cable on a sunny Saturday afternoon, was Vincenzo Natali’s 1997 sci-fi horror film Cube. To this day, it remains one of my very favourite films, a scrappy little piece of government-funded genre weirdness that gets by on crack direction, »

25 March 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

While space nerds always en-devour to shoot our asses into space it is the horror geeks that know, deep deep down, that this is a really bad idea. And we share that knowledge in our cinema but the space nerds just are not paying close enough attention. Well, here is one of the latest efforts to get that message across, David Hewlitt's Debug. And we have the brand spanking new key art to share with you from this latest feature from the Canadian writer/director and star of the Stargate franchise . In this tale of deep space cyber horror, six young computer hackers are sent to work on a derelict space freighter as a part of a work release program.
