Synopsis

For JR (komiker Carlen Altman) og broren Colin (regissør Alex Ross Perry), koger det over med søskenderivalisering på en biltur i denne selvbeskrevne «stødende komedie om skuffelse og tilgivelse.»

Vores mening

Before Listen Up Philip, Queen of Earth, and most recently, Her Smell, indie director Alex Ross Perry grabbed our attention with this second feature, an uproariously abrasive and fast-paced comedy about a hyper-dysfunctional brother-sister duo.

…[It’s] among the most significant American films of the last decade-plus and a key work of the modern independent cinema… When The Color Wheel suddenly pivots, in its final act, from a comic register to something more tragic, the effect is more pronounced than a simple tonal shift; instead it feels as though the parameters of the film have changed. An almost undetectable pressure, you realize, has been building through the picture.

Perry directs these uproarious rapid-fire flareups with exquisite comic timing and incisive comic framing (the black-and-white cinematography is by Sean Price Williams); he and Altman go at each other with claws bared, revealing the terrifying vulnerability of a pair of wounded souls who know each other’s wounds all too well.

That it’s often difficult to tell which of those three describes Perry’s work here more accurately isn’t a product of some duplicity on his part; rather, it hints at its complexity and uncategorizable originality. Schooled in film history but not beholden to it, treating style as expression rather than a given, taking its ambitions seriously, willing to explore unexplored or marginalized territory: the cinema of the future, I hope.
