Brilliant, Baroque Trailer for FELT
"Based on the real experiences and art of co-writer/star Amy Everson, Felt doesn't just point a finger at rape culture; it takes a full on swing at it, creating a feminist psychological thriller that audiences will be hard-pressed to shake off."
In a film that looks to pull few punches, and yet retain a quite striking style, director Jason Banker's sophomore effort (following his raw, effective debut, Toad Road) looks to be a major leap forward. The trailer suggests aggressive provocateur nature of ealy Bruno Dumont or Gaspar Noe.
Felt opens in limited release, June 26, and on VOD on July 21st. The trailer below is more than slightly *NSFW* so you have been warned.Struggling to cope with past sexual trauma and the daily aggression of a male-dominated society, Amy creates grotesquely-costumed alter egos that re-appropriate the male form. While giving her the sense of power she craves, acting as these characters pushes her further into a world of her own making. When she begins a new relationship with a seemingly good guy, she opens herself up to him - but that vulnerability comes at a dangerous cost, and her alter egos threaten to lash out in explosive violence.
