The Color Wheel
Dir. Alex Ross Perry. 2011, 83 mins. 35mm print courtesy of the Cinema Conservancy Archive. With Carlen Altman, Alex Ross Perry. Having recently broken up with her boyfriend and former professor, aspiring TV weathergirl JR calls on her estranged younger brother Colin to help retrieve her possessions at her ex’s apartment. What follows is one of the most uncomfortable road movies ever, as the two equally despicable characters incessantly pick on, undercut, and attack one another. “Perry gives a harsh, sarcastic twist to the intimate rivalry of siblings…. [He] directs these uproarious rapid-fire flare-ups with exquisite comic timing and incisive comic framing,” wrote Richard Brody in The New Yorker.
