“SUTURE contains every element I crave in a film: a strange/surreal premise, gorgeous black and white cinematography, uncanny nightmare sequences, neo-noir suspense, and just the right amount of ambiguity.”—J_Jerome, LETTERBOXD
Inspired by the paranoid visions of John Frankenheimer’s SECONDS, the desert noir of DETOUR, and the widescreen beauty of Hiroshi Teshigahara’s WOMAN OF THE DUNES, SUTURE is one of the most outstanding neo-noirs of the 1990s. The wealthy and self-assured Vincent (Michael Harris) meets his blue-collar half-brother Clay (Dennis Haysbert) at their father’s funeral, and is struck by their similarity. He decides to murder Clay and take his identity—only Clay survives the assassination attempt with no memory and is mistaken for Vincent. The fact that Harris is white and Haysbert is Black adds even more layers to a complex film that probes the very nature of identity. Executive produced by Steven Soderbergh and winner of Sundance's Best Cinematography award, SUTURE has been newly restored in 4K from the original camera negative.
