What Got This Director Here?: Killer of Sheep.
My Favorite Past Experience Was…: N/A.
What Did I Watch: Killer of Sheep.
Where Does He Fit: Killer of Sheep is a film that I slept on after a befuddled first viewing for class and realized that I totally loved. Nothing happens at all, and that’s the point. It’s a total student film, but one made with so much passion yet control over it. Henry Sanders and Kaycee Moore may spend their whole time reacting vaguely and doing nothing but shooting the shit and killing sheep, but they’re in such a strangely sad alien world. Most affecting of all is the dance scene that was worth every penny Soderbergh spent to get it into distribution, with our two leads interpreting it so differently that it breaks your heart.
Most Valuable Asset: A collage of life.
Most Excited For: My Brother’s Wedding.
Did They Deserve a Spot?: Yes.
Coming Up Next: Silent master and Bergman actor, Victor Sjostrom.
