Just watched a screener of the new independent film Coyote starring Bill Oberst Jr. I don't think I can come up with words to describe this bizarre and disturbing movie. The IMDb.com description says: "An insomniac writer's sleep-deprived hallucinations distort reality as paranoia drives him to extreme violence." Yes, that seems to be what the movie was about.

Actor Bill Oberst Jr. gives an absolutely brilliant, fearless performance. I was unnerved and on the edge of my seat the entire time. I was not sure if his character, conveniently named Bill, except when he's "Mark," is going to go postal, turn into a killer moon insect, wake up in an insane asylum, or set up a roadside hotel with his mother's corpse stashed in the attic. The way he delivered the line (about his car), "Runs like a motherf---er, Tom" gave me the biggest laugh I've had in some time. Kudos, Coyote! I suspect writer/director Trevor Juenger needs some serious therapy if he hasn't already had his fair share. I may need some after this. Perhaps Trevor car recommend a good therapist for me? So many questions after seeing Coyote, but the main one is: How am I going to get some sleep tonight? Sleep is the enemy . . .
