"A cross between Ingmar Bergman and Todd Solondz” -- Ian Jane, Rock! Shock! Pop!
Gory and shocking but also deeply thought-provoking, filmmaker Douglas Buck’s FAMILY PORTRAITS: A TRILOGY OF AMERICA is the DIY underground’s response to the American despair of BLUE VELVET. Over the course of seven years, Buck’s “Cutting Moments” (1997), “Home” (1998) and “Prologue” (2003) elicited horrified gasps and standing ovations at film festivals around the world. Here, they now form a highly intense single presentation -- a Voltron of skin-crawling unease that equals “the most chilling portrait of the loss of humanity in the manicured lawns of Middle America ever made.” (LA Weekly).
