Storyline

Erik Sparrow is one of the lucky ones. He's got a good job. He's in a stable relationship. He lives in one of the greatest cities in the world. Does he deserve it? Probably not. He's not too bright. He's not very attractive. He's not at all ambitious. He's chubby and he's always complaining. And when his girlfriend Jody proposes to him, he doesn't even have the good sense to accept her offer. He'll never find a woman like this again. Instead, Erik bumbles his way around the issue, offering one excuse after another for not getting married. When Jody dumps him and starts seeing an old flame from college, Erik tries to win her back. When he fails, he attempts to date other women, but the results are disastrous. Erik's starts falling apart. His job grows more unfulfilling. He becomes obsessed with a kinky co-worker who has no interest in him. He becomes riddled with despair. One night, Erik meets an enigmatic stranger named Gavin who asks him, "Do you want to die?" Erik shrugs and says, "... Written by Onur Tukel

Head Trip in Every Key
29 August 2014 | by (Grand Rapids, MI) – See all my reviews

Total auteur cinema, in the best, non-pretentious way possible. This is a film that never takes itself too seriously, yet throws down on some serious themes and ideas. A schlub who can't catch a break suddenly turns vampiric and kinda cool. Kinda. Not just Onur's performance, but every character, even the minors, are totally on it. They bounce off each other effortlessly. I'm normally bugged by neurotic characters, as they usually feel forced and rehearsed. Not Onur. His rhythms and surprisingly-apt observations come effortlessly, like he's abandoned the script for what he feels is true to the moment. It's honest to the core. Self-depricating and rude and hilarious. And there's blood and sex and internet dating. It's rough around the edges in the right ways. I have no idea how it was pulled off, but what feels like a colossal mess of ideas comes together so cohesively. It just clicks. It moves forward and doesn't really care if you can keep up. It may be the first film of the year that I really love.

And really, we're all afraid of becoming Michael Douglas.
