I’m always on the hunt for interesting movies to watch. So it was a pleasant surprise to check my email and see one had arrived for me. I had never heard of Dark Arc before this email arrived with a link to the trailer. But I am glad it did.
Here’s the description from the YouTube page:
Viscount Laris is an eccentric, modern-day dandy obsessed by the power of art and visual imagery to shape the behavior and destiny of the individual. Juxta, a striking young cosmetician absorbed by masks, makeup, and false identities, soon falls under Viscount’s idiosyncratic influence. Together they plot an elaborate game where they seek to influence the behavior of Ed Smith, a harmless and complacent graphic designer, through a meticulously planned series of staged visual events.
Okay, sure. That description could be for a film that is, quite frankly, bad. However, the trailer leads me to believe that that is not the case. Check it out.
The film looks crazy and bizarre, to be sure. But it has made me curious. And those are some pretty serious quotes from some pretty reputable sources. If you are interested, check out the Vanguard Cinema website to watch the film.
I’ll have to give it a watch and I’ll be sure to post my thoughts on it.
