Canary at Cinequest Film Festival 19

26 February 2009 11:05 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

I have a soft spot for lo-fi sci-fi like Twitch favorite Primer, or The Girl From Monday, so I am happy to see Alejandro AdamsCanary playing this weekend at Cinequest 19. I actually had the chance to screen this some time ago, but it has taken a while to wrap my head around it. Set in a near future science fiction, Canary trails an agent (the bewitchingly ghostly Carla Pauli) of a corporation that deals in organ transplants harvested from people that aren’t using them as effectively as their clients will. Lurking around corners and doorways, she eavesrops on her targets lives until having her way with with them in a van equipped for the surprisingly bloodless deed. I watched it right after catching Hartley’s No Such Thing, which helped me negotiate it as the kind of thoughtful sci-fi I grew up with behind stacks of Ray Bradbury books. »
