“A genre-bending, fantastical psychological thriller . . . that has more in common with a European arthouse movie than an American B-picture.” - THE A/V CLUB
Written and directed by Black filmmaker Christopher St. John (SHAFT), TOP OF THE HEAP is a majestic melding of genre thrills, sociological rage, and psychedelic experimentation. George (St. John) is a cop in Washington, DC, and he’s proud to be one of the few Black officers on the force. Unfortunately, not everyone feels the same. When George is overlooked for a promotion, he loses his handhold on reality and launches a personal vendetta against street crime. That is, when he’s not visiting alternate galaxies as an astronaut in his tripped-out dreams.
