The Color Wheel

A bickering brother-sister relationship becomes the overlying source of humor for Alex Ross Perry‘s unique 2011 black-and-white comedy The Color Wheel. Synopsis can be read as follows (via BAM):

“A comedy to be sure, but an exceedingly strange one, or better yet, described by the director as an “objectional comedy about disappointment and forgiveness”, the second feature from Perry (Impolex) follows the transformative road trip of JR (comedian Carlen Altman) and her brother Colin—played by the director—with whom she has a hopelessly complicated relationship. In beautifully grainy black and white 16mm, lensed by talented DP Sean Price Williams (Frownland), JR and Colin’s sibling rivalry simmers as they encounter past lovers, crushes, bullies, and classmates, and as put so well by Eric Allen Hatch of the Maryland Film Festival “only to rediscover why neither of them can stand each other. Along the way, they encounter a world full of people whose opinion of the duo is equally low.” Won Best Narrative (Feature) at the Chicago Underground Film Festival.”
