Apocalypse and the Beauty Queen is a hip, sexy, thriller with a strong protagonist, a horrifying tyrant, and a series of disturbing twist that build into a shocker of an ending. Amber, the main character is a mixture of beauty queen and revolutionary. After being told she was ugly through childhood, her self loathing became confused once she conquered the competitive world of fashion modeling. Being rejected by the same fashion industry that loved her just a few years earlier (she was in her late 20's), she returns to her small rural hometown. Suddenly the world ends, and Amber finds she has the charisma and strength to help rebuild her corner of the world in her own way. Written by Thomas Smugala

Beautifully designed, thoughtful art flick
22 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This gorgeous shot on 35 mm film is a surprisingly excellent entry to the current spate of indie films I have seen thus far this year. The story is unique (any one sick of all the remakes recently?) and absorbing. It is a classic tale told in the near future in an post-apocalyptic setting. Beauty has worth beyond anything else which is very reflective of today's times with celebrities becoming famous for just being famous. This multi-leveled story is timeless and shot so well it's definitely worth checking out. The actors, sets and themes are in a class by themselves. It's not surprising the director is a glamor photographer as the composition reflects his still work perfectly.
