If American Horror Story was directed by Guy Madden it might look like this film but don’t expect to see Lady Gaga as this is the (NSFW) trailer for Sculpt. The experimental film is described as a ‘Social Science Fiction’ the latest offering from French filmmaker Loris Greaud starring Willem Dafoe, Charlotte Rampling and Michael Lonsdale.
Sculpt is scarcely a social science fiction movie. It depicts an international market organized around new shapes and experiences, all the more sought-after as they are almost unattainable.
Thought recording and fascination for the inner space are no longer fantasies but truly the object of a global market, which thrives on a quest for these moments of pure intensity, beauty experiences, thought, and obsessions.
The movie recounts how this ecosystem, equipped with new « traders », middlemen, buyers, « collectors » and « producers », is structured, and how this elite group sets up experiences whose unique object is a search for the masterpiece of this nature. No one suspects what is woven behind those « objects » as its counterpoint gets organized in parallel: a black market of impure experiences; a violent and dystopian world.
The movie follows the thoughts of a man whom we don’t know much about. He seems to be constantly developing the very concept of what experiencing beauty, thought, or obsession can be, despite the risks that the subjects are exposed to in the long term. Convinced that he can enact the rules of this new world, he will soon discover that the inner space limits and the market representing them are now just as one
Sculpt has an impressive cast which includes Charlotte Rampling, Willem Dafoe, The Residents, Michael Lonsdale, Pascal Greggory among others.It’s an unique experimental film, which intrigues us and we’ve been told Sculpt is set for an August 2016 release. What country or format that will be we don’t know at this stage,but don’t be surprise if the film makes appearance at film festivals.
