Set against the 1950’s “golden age” of American male supremacy, an introverted young photographer (Tye Sheridan) joins a renowned lobotomist (Jeff Goldblum) on a tour to promote the doctor’s recently-debunked procedure. As he increasingly identifies with the asylum’s patients, he becomes enamored with a rebellious young woman (Hannah Gross) and lost in the burgeoning New Age movement of the west. Also starring Denis Lavant and Udo Kier!

“Alverson tackles his biggest canvas to date with this enigmatic look at early ‘50s America, drawing a fascinating contrast between its mythological ideals and harsh realities.” – IndieWire

“If you walked through the black lodge in Twin Peaks and out the back door into the upside-down, that’s where this film is set.” – Film Threat

“[Goldblum’s] performance in The Mountain is a disquieting, electrifying piece of horror-charisma, a perfect balance of allure and sociopathy that never requires Goldblum to turn up his energy to its usual manic proportions.” – The Atlantic
