Still Life

Movie Summary

Mike Flanagan
Not Available
A cynical look at four self-important, obsessive photographers who turn their lenses on the people in their own lives as part of an experimental portfolio, with devastating results. Danny (Zak Jeffries) finds his fianc? in bed with another man, and uses his camera to commemorate the event, end the relationship, and then follow his former love. David (Jamie Sinsz), an intense, heartless womanizer, creates a portfolio of his sexual conquests, until he falls for one of his "subjects". Karma (Natalie Roers) is fascinated by beginnings, and seeks out the early stages of beautiful things - in denial of the dark and abusive turn her own relationship is taking. Kevin (Michael Caloia) is love-struck by a new relationship, and doesn't want to miss a moment of it - but will find there are darker ends to capture when a family member begins to die.

    Has almost zero plot but molto mood. It will appeal to the most faithful of the director's camp-followers and no one else.
