DARK NIGHT
2016, Cinelicious Pics, 85 min, Dir: Tim Sutton

In July 2012, a gunman opened fire at a midnight screening in a Colorado multiplex, killing 12 people. How did our society reach the point where mass shootings seem to occur with numbing regularity? Tim Sutton’s third feature, loosely based around the Aurora massacre, offers an artfully understated critique of American gun culture. Shot documentary-style (by veteran French DP Helene Louvart) with a cast of nonprofessional actors, DARK NIGHT follows the activities of six strangers, the shooter among them, over the course of one day. An official selection of the Sundance, Venice and AFI film festivals. “Upon walking out of its world premiere at Sundance, I declared it to be the first great film of the year. And as that year went on, and Miami happened, and Trump happened, Sutton’s film felt not like a declaration of what was wrong with the country, but rather a meditation ... a meditation for all the fractured, lost and bitter souls. A meditation for us all.” - Ben Umstead, Screen Anarchy
