Marina Antunes [Celluloid 03.10.17] mystery

If there was an award for confusing a potential audience, the trailer for Buster's Mal Heart would win all the prizes. But then, reading a couple of different synopsis of the movie, I'm not sure any trailer could do this movie justice.

Rami Malek ("Mr. Robot") stars as the lead in a movie which, the trailer suggests, takes place both before and after an event called "the inversion." Before the event, Buster is living it up with his wife and daughter and working the night shift at a hotel but after the inversion, he's some sort of mountain man who breaks into vacation homes. Along with Malek, the movie also stars DJ Qualls and Kate Lyn Sheil.

Or at least I think that's what's going on. I've watched the trailer three times and I still don't really know what's going on.

Even with this mess of a trailer, I must say I'm intrigued. Partly because I've come to appreciate Malek's take on strange characters and partly because it just looks so damned weird.

Buster's Mal Heart opens April 28.

Recommended Release: Donnie Darko
