The Color Wheel

Feb 23, 2012

(Alex Ross Perry, 2011, USA, Blu-ray, 83 min)

The Color Wheel is a two-person show, a black-and-white comedic symphony of disappointment and forgiveness. Co-writer Carlen Altman and director Alex Ross Perry star as mutually detesting siblings on a road trip. Perry describes the film as resting uncomfortably somewhere between the solipsistic, unrepressed id of late Jerry Lewis, the confrontational pseudo-sexual self-loathing of Philip Roth and the black and white diners, motels and loners of Robert Frank’s America. It's the latest American film to drolly capture the mood of a generation caught in deferred adulthood.
