Every so often there is an indie film that is not only far better than most of what Hollywood makes, but surpasses everything in Hollywood a hundred-fold. Nobody is a dark, foreboding psychological shocker with gorgeous, haunting cinematography, and explosive performances from its leads, Costas Mandylor and Ed O' Ross.
The story takes place in a nameless, virtually empty urban hell hole of a city, where it seems to be perpetually nighttime. (kind of like the city in The Crow, but almost deserted. The hit-man Mortemain (Mandylor) navigates the cluttered alleyways and dank, dimly lit streets looking for his target, contracted out to him by the ruthless crime figure Rolo Towles (O' Ross). Things get murky and surreal when time seems to elipse upon itself like a snake eating its own tale, and Mortemain seems to be stuck in a hellish twilight zone crossed with a rabbit hole in the fabric existence. Events repeat themselves, a mysterious doppleganger of Mortemain appears, time doubles back on itself, and mysterious phenomena plagues the characters, leaving us challenged, freaked out and giddily entertained (well, me anyway).
The films composition is strikingly beautiful for a low budget indie, from the blood red sky along a lonely country road to desolate, snowy streets.
This film is like a mashup of Sin City, Memento, and The Twilight Zone, with its own special and unique flavor. Highly recommended.
