24th Athens International Film Festival

Motorama

Having penned the Kafkaesque "After Midnight" by Martin Scorsese and "Vampire's Kiss" by Robert Bierman (Nicolas Cage's best performance in his entire career), Shills delivers a surreal journey through America, featuring Susan Tyrrell, Jack Nance, Mary Woronov, Meat Loaf and Drew Barrymore alongside a remarkable Jordan Christopher Michael as Gus, one of the best child characters in recent history.

10-year-old Gus steals a Mustang and drives across the country in search of the coupons from the Motorama contest, hoping to win first prize. As the movie progresses, Barry Shils conjures up an outrageous departure from reason only to sum it all up in one of the most creative movie epilogues ever made, where time folds back on itself in a delightfully original kaleidoscope of dreams that would even make David Lynch green with envy!
