Plot & Details
Antonio Campos second feature (after 2008's 'AFTERSCHOOL') effort follows recent graduate Simon ($Brady Corbet) as he travels to Paris to escape the fallout from a former relationship. No matter how hard he tries, Simon can't seem to shake the past and feelings of lost love. Instead, he fills his days traveling the streets and taking in the sites, while composing letters to his ex-girlfriend, engaging in chat room sex and hitting on girls in the streets. When he meets a beautiful prostitute (Mati Diop) and falls in love, everything begins to unravel and we discover that Simon is harboring some dark secrets. Writer/Director Campos has created a compelling character in Simon, who is both charming and emotionally stunted - a breakout lead role for Brady Corbet, who expertly balances the dualities of the character with just the right amount of charisma and callousness. 'SIMON KILLER' further demonstrates Campos' ability as an auteur, engaging audiences with truly visionary films that are beautifully peppered with distinctive camerawork, editing and style.
