Bernard Rose, USA, 2000, Arrow Films, Arthouse

“A horrifyingly watchable, deliciously cruel fable -- shot on digital video like a documentary from hell.” -- Peter Bradshaw, THE GUARDIAN

Directed by Bernard Rose (CANDYMAN) and loosely based on Tolstoy's “The Death of Ivan Ilyich”, IVANSXTC is in fine company amongst THE PLAYER and THE DAY OF THE LOCUST as a powerful meditation on life, death and opening-weekend grosses. Danny Huston gives the searing lead performance of a lifetime as hotshot Tinseltown agent Ivan Beckman, locked into a fateful spiral of drink and drug-fueled excess after a shock cancer diagnosis. Co-starring Peter Weller (ROBOCOP, BUCKAROO BANZAI) as Ivan’s most successful, least-empathetic client!
