This week’s film is The Color Wheel produced and directed by Alex Ross Perry and written by Alex Ross Perry and Carol Altman. The film is nominated for a 2013 Independent Spirit Award. A. O Scott of the New York Times says   “‘The Color Wheel’ follows a brother and a sister on a desultory road trip from Pennsylvania to Boston and beyond. J R (Carlen Altman) has recently broken up with the professor she had been involved with — despite their intimacy, she insists on referring to him as “the professor” — and she enlists her younger brother, Colin (Alex Ross Perry), to accompany her on the drive.”

The Director of Photography was Sean Price Williams and shot on 16mm in black-and-white that is at once naturalistic and hallucinatory.
