Screening with LITTLE WILLY + IT CAME FROM THE 80S
SURVIVAL SKILLS (Special Preview)
Dir: Quinn Armstrong. Starring: Stacy Keach, Vayu O'Donnell, Spencer Garrett. USA (2020) 80mins
Do not adjust your tracking, you're just the newest cadet in the Middletown Police Force; but don't worry, Survival Solutions Training video is here to get you started. You'll be joining fresh faced cop Jim, and under the careful guide of a wisened leiutenant, heading out on your first 911 callout. Just remember, keep your gun hollistered as you're here to help *smiles to camera*.
Quinn Armstrong's startling debut may begin as a note-perfect pastiche of those 80's training VHS, but soon evolves into something far more insidious, apropos and searing. A satirical deconstruction of police conduct and mentality that cuts so close to the bone, you can taste the marrow.
