See the movie that our own Josh reviewed last Summer.
Those familiar with director Richard Bates, Jr. will be prepared for the jaunty tone of this blackish comedy-slash-modern social commentary. From his fabulous first feature, Excision, Bates has displayed an all-consuming interest in skewering social mores through dark and frequently bloody satire. King Knight sees him playing nice with the audience, moving from aggressively attacking the generation gap, to gently ribbing the idea of self-actualization and what that means when who you are seems directly at odds with who you once were and how one reconciles the two.King Knight is a return to the kind of intelligent satire where Bates works best.
The cast includes Matthew Gray Gubler, Angela Sarafyan, Andy Milonakis, Kate Comer, Johnny Pemberton, Josh Fadem, Nelson Franklin, Emily Chang, Ronnie Gene Blevins, Swati Kapila, Shane Brady, AnnaLynne McCord, Alice Glass, with Barbara Crampton, and Ray Wise.
