Former San Franciscan Greg Harrison follows up his rave-inflected hit Groove with this change-of-pace homage to the mindbending thrillers of David Lynch. Courteney Cox Arquette finds herself a long way from Friends as a photographer piecing together the mystery of her boyfriend’s murder, one photo—and memory—at a time. Cox Arquette is Sophia Jacobs, a woman traumatized by the sudden death of her lover Hugh (James Legros) during a corner-store holdup. Overcome with grief and guilt (she had been cheating on Hugh), she sees a psychiatrist (Nora Dunn) and attempts to reconnect with her mother (Anne Archer). When Sophia discovers an extra slide in her photography tray, however, that tragic night’s events are cast in a new light: The mysterious film shows the scene of the crime, but not in the manner that Sophia remembers. Exactly what its blurry images mean, and exactly what they show, sends Sophia on a hunt for the truth behind her memories of that fateful night. Inspired by the perception-versus-reality mindgames of Mulholland Drive and the eerie psychological aesthetic of Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now, director Harrison and cinematographer Nancy Schreiber create a November of the mind, where darkness falls early and secrets linger in the night. Produced by InDigEnt, the company responsible for such breakthrough digital video efforts as Rodger Dodger, Pieces of April and Tadpole, the film deservingly won the Sundance Film Festival’s Excellence in Cinematography Award and affirms Courteney Cox Arquette’s status as a star ready for big-screen success.
