“Five stars! Mesmerizing…a singular cinematic object!”—Time Out New York

A movie lover’s dream comes true as Werner Herzog and David Lynch, two of the most distinctive filmmakers of our time, team up. Written and directed by Herzog and produced by Lynch, the film is based on a harrowing true story and features a strong cast of notable character actors, including Michael Shannon, Willem Dafoe, Chloë Sevigny, Udo Kier, and others.

My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done spins an eccentric story of ancient myth and modern madness, told in a string of flashbacks. A detective (played by Dafoe) tries to piece together the psychological deterioration of Brad Macallam (Michael Shannon), a San Diego actor who, after being cast as the matricidal lead in a production of a Greek tragedy, ends up killing his own mother in real life. (91 mins., 35mm)
