FRIDAY 25TH AUGUST
Director: Simon Rumley. With: Amanda Fuller, Ethan Embry, Eric Balfour, Alex Essoe, Alexandria DeBerry. USA 2016. 110 mins.
RED, WHITE AND BLUE, then JOHNNY FRANK GARRET’S LAST WORD and now comes uber-eccentric director Simon Rumley’s latest Austin, Texas, based shocker. A hypnotic and bracing exploration of identity, body image and transformation, this sleekly demented De Palma-esque nightmare is set in the vintage clothing world where hipster shop owners April and Eric find their marriage tested when she begins to suspect her husband of having an affair. Her suspicions confirmed, April seeks sexual validation with the very mysterious and kinky Randall setting off a chain reaction of stylish fever dream madness, en vogue fantasy role-playing and chic ultra-shriek.
