Storyline

Tim Sutton's debut feature, likened to films by Gus Van Sant and Pedro Costa, follows a laconic teenager (Max) who moves from an idyllic lakeside town to his father's home in arid suburban Arizona. With mesmerizing imagery of hot summer bike rides and cool lake-bound dives, Pavilion captures the ephemerality and reverie of youth and the fragility of adolescent friendships. A haunting score by the Sea and Cake's Sam Prekop shadows the storyline, echoing its secrets and shouldering its mysteries. Written by Anonymous

Hyper realism portraying moments of modern youth...
5 March 2013 | by brooksmurphy-1See all my reviews

...turns out to somehow lack any emotional significance for the viewer. I usually love minimal films like this. Gerry and especially Paranoid Park by Gus Van Sant, along with La Vie De Jesus, were obvious influences.

The framing of every otherwise trivial action (the film is just a series of moments) is so precise and beautiful and paced very well with the editing, but lacks any character development so in the end left me careless. I know this is supposed to represent the feeling of youth, but it's too melancholy in a way. Where are the moments of flaw. I hated Gummo, but it seems like an ultra realism marriage between this film and Gummo would be amazing.

A very stylistic and experimental first feature. I enjoyed watching it in an outdoor gay bar in Austin, Texas as well.
