Directed by Scott McGehee and David Siegel • 1993 • United States
Starring Dennis Haysbert, Mel Harris, Sab Shimono
The fascinating debut feature from Scott McGehee and David Siegel is a spellbinding exploration of identity, memory, and dreams that evokes the coolly modernist visual style of 1960s black-and-white art-house cinema. Half brothers Clay (Dennis Haysbert) and Vincent (Michael Harris) meet for the first time at their father’s funeral. Unbeknownst to Clay, Vincent has a plan to fake his own death and steal his brother’s identity—a scheme that sets into motion a surrealist noir story of amnesia, plastic surgery, doppelgängers, betrayal, and murder.
