Three Headed Beast
Peter and Nina are a long term couple navigating a healthy and comfortable open relationship. Alex is a young man still figuring out adult life who has formed an intense connection with Peter. Their individual fears, desires and loneliness collide over a hot Texas summer in a nearly wordless film told largely through intimacy, body language and music. This is an immersive relationship drama, which masterfully depends on visuals and sounds instead of dialogue. The film has a mumblecore approach with big stylistic ideas and carefully orchestrated camerawork, and reminds us of all the possibilities of cinema.
