Nic Roeg's kind of mystery
2 February 2013 | by pcallanhereSee all my reviews

Saw the genre-bending BRIEF REUNION at THE QUAD CINEMA in NYC. What I liked best and which most of the crew of critics completely missed in their rush to apply niche keywords to this first feature-length effort by John Daschbach is the great skill with which the director puts his characters through their paces in the fractured unraveling of an enigmatic and complex mystery (The 70s work of English directors Nicolas Roeg and John Schlesinger come to mind).

Daschbach also places his people in a lush atmosphere of lakes, country houses and green meadows at summer's height. The landscapes he chooses, vividly photographed by Joseph Foley, virtually shimmer in spots. The locations undertake as much a role in the course of the story as the actors. They bely the chicanery, evasion, mayhem and murder that ultimately occurs while at the same time foretelling it. In this way BRIEF REUNION works against expectation and more importantly, convention. The film rightly avoids the boilerplate smash cut storytelling so prevalent these days and takes its time. The characters breathe and the effect is that tension, foreboding and turmoil slowly build. Our discomfort grows incrementally with the characters on the screen. At film's end we are surprised to find out whom we have and haven't been rooting for.
