A "successful" businessman finds his world crumbling.
This experimental, low-budget film, with its combination of moody music, numerous extended takes (including many breathtaking scenic shots of Utah -- which are better experienced on the big screen), brilliant writing (both subject matter and dialogue), and innovative narrative mechanisms puts director Jon Jost at the top of my list of important, and certainly creative, contemporary American directors. If you're into indie/art films, and don't know who Jon Jost is, this is an excellent place to start. If you already know who Jost is, I think this is his best.
