I just returned from the second screening of this film in American. The director a former Cal arts grad return tonight to showcase his first feature film, along with his DP.
This is one of those movies that not many get to see and it is a shame too. It is a low low budget DV masterpiece that merges surrealism and reality to create a world of it's own. This a very deep and multilayered account of depressed man and a boy who is lost and needs to find answer by finding his MOM. There is so much great stuff i can write about this movie.
I don't have enough words or time to describe this movie or piece of art.
It is both political and gentle, homoerotic and romantic, it is full of mystery and beauty. All actor give brilliant performances and really gives themselves to this picture.
The director shoot 80 hours of footage in a doc/free style that he boiled down to 1 hour 40 mins.. You can tell, this effort gives each character a very deep soul.
Anyway see this movie if you can and if you can't yell.
