UNTITLED (a film)
Directed By: Chris Loizou | Runtime: 87 min | Plays In Short Block:
UNTITLED is the story of KURT LOVELL, a suddenly successful British independent film producer, fresh from a successful Cannes, on the verge of his biggest deal yet, running parallel to struggling screenwriter, TIMOTHY BARTEL’s screenplay of the same name. A story, about story notes given by Kurt’s assistant on Tim’s script , shape the next eight hours Kurt Lovell spends on his 1st day back at the office.
Somehow as the notes dictate, Kurt’s day is soon invaded by an unfulfilled wife, a drug dealing investor, an internet porn king, a broken hearted lover and something diabolical in a bag. This bizarre bunch pecking at him by way of texts, video calls, phone calls, emails and networking sites, using the very technology that consumes our lives today.
An homage to the film noir thriller? Shamelessly stealing from the masters of old, with countless cheeky film-fan nods & movie-buff’s easter eggs about surely the greatest entertainment medium of all time? Or a twisted paradox forcing Kurt’ to question his own very existence as he hurls towards the big Hollywood meeting, struggling to prevent his business deals, his loves, his addictions & his infidelities from ludicrously unravelling.
