The Color Wheel

Jul 06 - Jul 12, 2012

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

We’re bringing back The Color Wheel following its smash screening at our American.Film.Week in 2011.  
The film 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. And trust us when we say, there will be laughter from beginning to end. 

"a movable feast of lacerating wit combined with visual sophistication...'The Color Wheel' partially recalls the scathing audacity of 'The Graduate' some 45 years ago." -Jeff Shannon, The Seattle Times
