FANDOR INDIE MIXER/MEMBERS-ONLY: Joe (sneak preview, David Gordon Green in person!)


“Cage bristles with unpredictable energy in an aces performance.” — Variety

Schedule permitting, David Gordon Green in person — plus, Bennett Kogon (FYF Fest, KXLU) will be here to spin tunes before the show! Hot on the heels of the wonderfully funny and touching Prince Avalanche, one of our favorite filmmakers working today — David Gordon Green — gives us another, darker dose of smalltown friendship, violence and redemption in the form of Joe. The film brings Nic Cage back to his indie roots in the title role as the hard-living, hot-tempered, ex-con Joe Ransom, who’s just trying to dodge his instincts for trouble while evolving into a tender-hearted protector for a hard-luck kid (Tye Sheridan, The Tree of Life) hounded by a reckless alcoholic father. “A thoughtful portrait of Southern despair, efficiently culminating in a suspenseful arrangement of images that realize the full range of strengths from the creative team involved: Green’s longtime cinematographer Tim Orr and composer David Wingo complicate the movie’s dense atmosphere to give it both poetic and lived-in feel. If “Joe” marks a new beginning for some of its characters, the same description applies to its director and star.” (Hollywood Reporter)
Dir. David Gordon Green, 2014, DCP, 117 min.
