American Lunch (1989) [Short]

USA (MIFF 1990 , Fiction)

A cunning storyteller presents a curious tale of blackmail to two friends invited to lunch. As the story unwinds we realise that the blackmail plot is merely a cover-up for a far more sinister plot involving revenge and murder. This fast-paced, ironic black comedy provides the spectator with a challenging puzzle of events whose meaning always lies just beyond the frameline.
