Art Blog - Antonio Campos - Empty Kingdom

Antonio Campos’ feature film SIMON KILLER explores the world view of one man’s seemingly harmless impulsive behavior, and the troubling implications that stem from a foggy state of mind.I’ve never seen Campos’ earlier works (which should be remedied shortly), but just knowing that he’s a major part of the filmmaking collective behind MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE already puts me at ease.

More story details can be read as follows:

“The follow-up to Antonio Campos’ critically acclaimed AFTERSCHOOL, SIMON KILLER is an erotic and and psychological portrait of Simon (Brady Corbet, MELANCHOLIA, MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE), a well-educated, handsome and seemingly sympathetic college graduate with just a hint of something off putting enough to ignite a sense of concern.

Recently heartbroken, Simon travels to Paris to clear his head. After several days of wandering aimlessly, Simon finds himself drawn into a sex parlor and has a sexual encounter with an exotic prostitute, Victoria (Mati Diop, 35 SHOTS OF RUM). The chemistry builds between the two until they find themselves in a serious relationship, one that leads to blackmail, betrayal and the ultimate revelation of Simon’s true nature.”
