Acidman

Maggie tracks down her father, Lloyd, a reclusive man who lives in the middle of the woods. Their reunion, which highlights how different they are and the passage of time, will have a meaning beyond pure redemption as Maggie discovers the paranormal phenomena that her father has been investigating. Thomas Haden Church and Dianna Agron give a memorable performance in this reflective film about loneliness and concern for the passing of time.

 

Thanks to films like Paddleton and Blue Jay, Alex Lehmann has become one of the key figures of contemporary indie cinema. Like in his previous movies, award-winning Acidman is a perfect example of intimate cinema, full of nostalgia, with – in this case – a paranormal background that serves as a metaphor for the differences between people.
