(Shane Carruth, 2013)

Fri, Apr 19, 2013

“Heart-stoppingly beautiful.… One of the most transcendent experiences of my moviegoing life.”—Sam Adams, The Onion AV Club

“Full of big bold ideas that demand, and reward, close and careful viewing and contemplation.”—MSN

A mythic, mysterious, and sensuous romantic thriller, this long-anticipated second feature confirms writer-director Shane Carruth (of the award-winning Primer) as one of the most strikingly original voices in American cinema. After a vicious robbery, a man and woman are drawn together, unknowingly entangled in the lifecycle of an ageless organism. Identity becomes an illusion as they struggle to find a place of safety and to create something from the loose fragments of their wrecked lives (96 mins., DCP)
