Film Notes

U.S. THEATRICAL PREMIERE RUN!

FILMMAKER IN PERSON!

With Andrew Gillis and Bhreagh Macneil. Distributed by Factory 25.

“Ashley McKenzie’s feature debut, after a string of sterling shorts, tracks two methadone-swigging wastrels whose chemical dependencies have them eking out a feral existence in small-town Nova Scotia. The narrative materials are generic…but the filmmaking is vivid and specific. Smart visual choices abound: close-cropped Blaise is introduced as a man literally at the end of his rope; his girlfriend Nessa crumbles Oreos in an ice-cream shop contraption suggesting a Sisyphean cycle; a burdensome bit of equipment lugged to and fro makes the production’s debt to ROSETTA (1999) and L’ENFANT (2005) clear. What McKenzie is really borrowing from the Dardennes, though, is not the spare, festival-ready aesthetic – which is actually closer to Lucrecia Martel’s stylized sound design and bisected bodies – but a genuinely materialist sensibility, minus any traces of the brothers’ redemptive spirituality. There’s a bare minimum of junkie poetry here: addiction is not a tragic state of grace but just one more self-destructive compulsion among many, while the finely gradated interactions between the protagonists and different representatives of various institutional establishments place empathy and ambivalence side by side, where they belong.” –Adam Nayman, CINEMA SCOPE

“WEREWOLF isn’t a horror movie in substance but in spirit. It’s a drama about the virtual possession of souls and transformation of bodies caused by drug addiction, and McKenzie’s miraculous filming of two young people in its grip is similarly poised at the boundary of bodies and souls. […] Filming in a quiet place of rustic isolation, McKenzie narrows her scope of vision to discern and magnify tremors of an involuntary and unconscious power. She looks at Nessa and Blaise with an urgent intimacy that often bypasses facial expressions to isolate aspects of the body – including facial features, hand gestures, postures, or even tools and articles of clothing – that transmit emotions without declaring them.” –Richard Brody, NEW YORKER
