Actor Tye Sheridan will be joining us for a Q&A after the Monday, September 9th screening of the film.
Filmmaker Rick Alverson of the rigorous art comedies THE COMEDY and ENTERTAINMENT returns with a quiet mystery set in a disturbing moment in American history—the height of the mid-century lobotomy fad. Tye Sheridan plays a young man who, after the death of his father, signs on to work as a photographer for a traveling lobotomy enthusiast (played by Jeff Goldblum).
“Rich with ideas as it fixates on characters roaming empty worlds, searching for impossible ideals.” – Eric Kohn, IndieWire
“A near-hypnotic pall of strangeness, so opaque as to be genuinely menacing, shadows and disrupts the pristine surfaces of THE MOUNTAIN — and that’s before Denis Lavant shows up to take its derangement into the stratosphere.” – Guy Lodge, Variety
