Directed by Tim Sutton
2016, USA, 85 min

A haunting, artfully understated critique of American gun culture, loosely based on the 2012 massacre in Aurora, Colorado which took place during a multiplex screening of The Dark Knight Rises. Employing a mesmerizing documentary-style technique and a cast of non-professional actors, the film follows the activities of six strangers over the course of one day, from sunrise to midnight, the shooter among them. Shot in Sarasota, Florida and lensed by veteran French cinematographer Helene Louvart (Pina, The Beaches of Agnes), the dreamlike visuals articulate both Sutton’s carefully crafted landscapes and the characters’ sense of alienation and suburban malaise. Winner of the Lanterna Magica Award at the Venice Film Festival, Dark Night is essential viewing, not only for art-house filmgoers, but also for anyone invested in the debate over gun violence in America.

 

Reviews

Filmmaker Tim Sutton develops terrifying suspense around nothing happening. Dark Night often feels like a series of likeminded dreams flowing together.
