To announce the release of the brilliant new film, A Measure of the Sin, we're re-releasing director Jeff Wedding's 2007 film, Gracie: The Diary of a Coma Patient, an experimental horror melodrama about the visions of a dying man in a coma, shot in Super 8mm. A little inscrutable, in and of itself, taken together with the new film, it's an intriguing starting point, borrowing from Dreyer's The Passion of Joan of Arc, Catholic imagery+themes, creation/destruction myths, etc, etc. A silent film w/ distraught, heartbroken narration. Religious chants and prayers whispered throughout. A nun at a bedside giving last rites. That kind of thing. For all it's enigma, its self-assuredness is never in question. Wedding is in full control of the strange vision. A Measure of the Sin nails home his relevance as an up-and-comer, even if his playing field is a no-man's land of art horror experimental religious b-movie sleazy pics. If you can't get into Gracie, still seek out A Measure of the Sin. Cause if the above trailer doesn't make you want to see the new movie, we gotta have a talk. A 2014 Must See. Or buy the collector's edition DVD (only 200 sold).
