Haunting portrait of a psychological breakdown
19 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Beautifully shot and directed, Desert Cathedral is a moving story about a seemingly average husband/father from suburbia, a man who has lost his way in life. Interesting integration of archival footage throughout makes the experience strange and captivating (yet sometimes painful) to watch, detailing his psychological breakdown through video/audio diaries. Beautiful desert as the backdrop for the story and strong lead performances by both Lee Tergesen (who carries the film) and Chaske Spencer who plays a very likable private investigator. Desert Cathedral is a bold commentary on broken values, American masculinity and suicide. This is a film that will stand the test of time - although a period film in the early 1990's, the themes are just as topical and relevant today. Looking forward to seeing more from director Travis Gutiérrez Senger in the near future.
