Max leaves his lakeside town to live with his father on the fringe of suburban Arizona. Both fever dream and quiet trip, PAVILION creates a deep and ethereal world, showing us an innocent way of life coming apart at the seams, constructing an indelible image of the enigma of youth. –SXSW
Ghost-like showcase of youth in AZ. The images are stellar and the rhythm of the movie is hypnotic. The quietness of the narrative is admirable and definitely unique to other quiet "indie" movies. Really not much to hate here, except that the conflict of the movie is barely there and if it went on longer, I would have shot myself. Other than that, very solid effort. I'll be looking forward for more from Tim Sutton.
A really quiet summer movie with the structure of Slacker where ennui is the enemy. The beauty of the images are something to strongly admire. I really liked the themes and the ideas behind this film but it's good it wasn't longer than 70 minutes, theres only so much I could take. A very well done film, thats not for everyone but that I personally enjoyed immensely.
