BUSTER'S MAL HEART

A massive manhunt and violent shoot-out has Buster cornered in a remote cave. Buster is a legend, a drifter who lives in the wild and in empty vacation homes in winter, always evading capture. Who is he? BUSTER’S MAL HEART skids us across time like a skipping stone to offer pieces to that puzzle. The story reveals what leads to Buster’s discovery and introduces us to Jonah, a struggling young night manager with a wife and child. Jonah meets a nameless stranger, a prophet of the Apocalypse, who warns Jonah of cosmic inversions and malignant conspiracies. When unthinkable tragedy shatters Jonah’s world, these seemingly unconnected narratives begin to reveal a disturbing pattern. Who is the man adrift at sea who mentally communicates with Buster? Is it one person, a soul divided? BUSTER’S MAL HEART doles out its secrets in a startling, cerebral manner. It questions the very solidity of the universe without denying the painful reality of the human heart. This beautiful and bizarre film will boggle your mind. Brace yourself. —C.R.
