How exciting is it to finally get a new Shane Carruth film in spring 2013 (or January if you are at Sundance)? Very exciting, it’s been 8 years since Primer (a science-fiction favourite in these parts), and while the writer/director’s screenplay for “A Topiary” never got made into a film, he whipped out this surprise to many earlier this week by way of the festival announcement and a very shiny bit of key art which confirms that Carruth will star in the film along with Amy Seimetz (A Horrible Way To Die).
“A man and woman are drawn together, entangled in the life cycle of an ageless organism. Identity becomes an illusion as they struggle to assemble the loose fragments of wrecked lives.”
Resident culture snob.
