HOLY LAND (2010)
Eschewing the comic underpinnings of his previous work, Kentucker Audley's Holy Land veers into experimental territory pointing at a new darkness and subtle nihilism while following the exploits of an antagonistic young Memphis musician turned novelist. The film is notable for its complete absence of plot, a dedication to stasis, and a subversive structure.
Praise for the film:
“Intelligent and emotionally jolting… offers a remarkably full and novelistic sense of lives being lived, of a world and a worldview.” Richard Brody, The New Yorker
“One of the Best Undistributed Films of 2010.” Nick Dawson, author of “Being Hal Ashby: Life of a Hollywood Rebel”
"In Kentucker Audley's tectonic, astonishing second feature people show up and dissolve like they're being swallowed into the land, itself always shifting." Craig Keller, Masters of Cinema
“An incredibly striking picture, as bold and assured as Team Picture was pleasantly ambling.” David Lowery, filmmaker (Ain't Them Bodies Saints)
