THE WIDOWER (Marcus Rogers, 1999)
Dir. Marcus Rogers, 1999.
CA. 79 min.
SATURDAY JANUARY 18 – MIDNIGHT
"The Widower, produced and directed by Canadians Marcus Rogers and Kevin McBride, is a highly stylized, deliberately paced David Lynchian fable about a very reticent man (Shawn Milsted) who keeps the rigor mortis-ridden corpse of his beloved deceased wife (Romona Orr) preserved, even taking her out on dates until a couple of bumbling cops get wise to his disturbing (if genuinely touching) necrophiliac activities. Visually augmented by nightmarish hallucinations, with a killer lounge-surf-rock-pop soundtrack, it is a rather romantic tale of mournful dementia."
