Piercing

Pacific Northwest Premiere

USA | 2018 | 81 Min | Dir. Nicolas Pesce
Friday, August 24 | 9:00PM | North Bend Theatre

After kissing his wife and baby goodbye for a seemingly normal business trip, Reed (Christopher Abbott) checks himself into a hotel room to accomplish something he’s always dreamed of: the perfect murder. As his sinister plans unfold, he soon realizes he might be in over his head with a mysteriously unhinged call girl named Jackie (Mia Wasikowska).

 

Director Nicolas Pesce takes a 180 degree turn in style from THE EYES OF MY MOTHER (2016) to tackle a dark comedy pervade with colorful art deco visuals. An adaptation of Murakami eponymous novel, Piercing goes from laughter to shock in a second while remaining always pleasing to the eyes, a tour de force few directors can achieve.
