Lapsis

Available to rent for $6.99
February 12 - March 11
Directed by Noah Hutton
2020, USA, 108 min

This title is available to rent via Cinematheque at Home for $6.99. This is not only an opportunity for our patrons to see new cinema, but is an important way that they can continue to support independent film during this pandemic with 50% of all sales supporting our theatre.

Queens delivery man Ray Tincelli (Dean Imperial) is skeptical of new technology, and the buy-in to start cabling is steep, but he struggles to support himself and his ailing younger brother, who suffers from a mysterious illness. So when Ray scores a shady permit, he believes their fortunes may have finally changed. What he doesn’t expect is to be pulled into a conspiracy involving hostile cablers, corporate greed, and the mysterious “Lapsis” who may have previously owned his medallion. Called “a smart class-conscious sci-fi parable” by The Hollywood ReporterLAPSIS is a darkly comic and timely look at the gig economy and the failed utopian promises of big tech.

Reviews

An ingenious social satire wrapped inside an intelligent sci-fi parable.
- Rob Aldam, Backseat Mafia
...entertainingly original.... This tale of a floundering gig-economy worker straddles both the bleak present-tense reality of Ken Loach’s Sorry We Missed You and the subversive near-future political satire of Boots Riley’s Sorry to Bother You while arriving at a whimsical critique all its own.
- Dennis Harvey, Variety
