Sundance 2011: Todd Rohal's CATECHISM CATACLYSM Poster Makes A Statement.
It's unusual for us to devote a post here to nothing more than poster art. The reason is simply that I consider most posters to be nothing more than PR tools, visual accompaniment for actual news rather than being actual news themselves, but every now and then one comes along that is a bona fide work of art in and of itself. Such is the poster for Todd Rohal's Catechism Cataclysm.

Produced by Rough House Pictures - David Gordon Green's company with Danny McBride and Jody Hill - the darkly absurd comedy will soon premiere in the midnight program at Sundance. Here's how Sundance describes it:

Storytelling in all its forms is skewered in The Catechism Cataclysm. This shish kebab of wild characters melts together stories within stories until the lines between the Bible, Mark Twain, and campfire tales are wiped out, and the viewer is carried down the river into a divinely bizarre and funny tale.

Father Billy, a young priest who has lost interest in the church, decides to take a sabbatical. He tracks down his high-school friend Robbie, who begrudgingly agrees to a canoe trip. On the water, the two men reminisce about Billy's days as the keyboardist in a Christian band and Robbie's as a guitarist for a metal band, but when night approaches, they realize they have lost their way--and that's when things get weird.

Buoyed by commanding comedic performances and deft handling by director Todd Rohal, The Catechism Cataclysm spins a fantastic yarn that shines a light on the power of absurd fiction.
