Loosely adapted from Charles Brockden Brown's 1799 novel "Edgar Huntly, or Memoirs of a Sleepwalker," Overwhelm the Sky tells the story of Edgar "Eddie" Huntly, an east coast radio personality who moves to San Francisco to marry Thea, the sister of his best friend Neil, a successful entrepreneur. Shortly before Eddie's arrival, Neil is found murdered in Golden Gate Park in what the police surmise was a simple mugging gone awry. As the sullen Eddie steps in as interim host of his old friend Dean's late-night talk-radio show, he obsessively makes regular visits to the forested spot where Neil's corpse was found. One such visit unleashes a chain of unpredictable events that sends Eddie snooping into the life of a sleepwalking drifter with a mysterious past.Written by
There are three cuts of this film. The first (177 minutes) is the "Roadshow-Style Edition" which opens with an Overture and includes an Intermission with Entr'acte music. The second (170 minutes) is the Standard Version which excludes the Overture and Intermission, and deletes three dramatic scenes from the body of the film, most notably a fuller introduction to the Daria (Tiziana Perinotti) character. The third (116 minutes) is the Shortened Theatrical Cut, which streamlines the narrative into a simpler neo-noir. The latter version is not director Daniel Kremer's preferred cut and he prepared it for the sole purpose of making the film easier to program at American festivals. See more »
