As I do every so often, I'm running this post about a non-Asian film that I think will appeal to many AsianCineFest readers.While I haven't an opportunity to see the film yet, Jeannette Catsoulis's review in The New York Times can be read online here and Andre Schenker's strongly positive review the village VOICE can be read here. The film is a NYT Critics' Pick and Schenker's review also was strongly posititve.
Meanwhile, here's some info I received that I'd like to share:
MAKE-OUT with VIOLENCE is a genre-bending tale of a boy trying to fulfill his unrequited love for a girl who has risen from the dead. Set against the backdrop of a summer of cicadas and swimming pools, the film blends elements of up-beat teenage melodrama with the strange gravity of classic coming of age stories.
Twin brothers Patrick and Carol Darling are fresh graduates from high school and struggling to come to terms with the unexplained disappearance of their friend, the bright and beautiful Wendy Hearst. When a drive through the countryside surrounding their suburban community leads to the discovery of Wendy’s mysteriously animated corpse, the boys secretly transport the undead Wendy to an empty house in hopes of somehow bringing her back to life. As the sweltering summer pushes on, they must maintain the appearance of normalcy for their friends and family as they search for ways to revive the Wendy they once knew, or, failing that, to satisfy their own quests for love amongst the living and the dead.
The multiple film festival winner is making its New York theatrical run for one-week only beginning August 27th at the reRun Gastropub Theater in Brooklyn, NY.
MAKE-OUT with VIOLENCE will be available on DVD, blu-ray, limited LP/DVD combo and digital download from the Factory 25 website beginning October 26th, 2010.
