In 2001, writer/director Richard Kelly achieved cult status with Donnie Darko, an assured debut feature exploring deep existential questions through the lens of 80s nostalgia. Five years later, he followed up with a more ambitious and even more beguiling sophomore effort, in which forces of totalitarianism and anarchism collide against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic, near-future world - the beguiling and baffling Southland Tales. Los Angeles, 2008. As the city stands on the brink of social, economic and environmental chaos, the fates of an eclectic set of characters - including an amnesia-stricken action star (Dwayne Johnson, the Fast & Furious series), an adult film star developing her own reality TV project (Sarah Michelle Gellar, Cruel Intentions) and a police officer whose identity has split in two (Seann William Scott, TV's Lethal Weapon) - intertwine with each other and with the whole of humanity. A darkly comic futuristic epic that speaks as presciently to our turbulent times as it did to the American socio-political climate in 2006, Southland Tales receives a fresh - and timely - lease of life with this new, director-approved restoration.

Press Quotes

Southland Tales has more ideas, visual and intellectual, in a single scene than most American independent films have in their entirety.

     —Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

(Richard Kelly) is a cinematic anarchist.

     —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Eerily prescient...a saga of crime, identity, and conspiracy in LA that touches on government surveillance, armed resistance, corporate intrusion and celebrity culture -- told with equal parts anger, humor, disillusionment and apocalyptic rapture

     —The Los Angeles Times

Is Southland Tales seemingly willfully perplexing? Yes, but the film does offer a truly bizarre assortment of plot points and attendant visuals. This is another Arrow release of a cult item that may arguably hold as much interest in its supplemental content as for the feature itself. Technical merits are solid, and the supplemental package very enjoyable. Recommended.
