A THRILLER WHERE NOTHING IS BLACK AND WHITE

Inspired by the paranoid visions of John Frankenheimer’s The Manchurian Candidate and Seconds, the desert noir of Detour and the black and white widescreen beauty of Hiroshi Teshigahara’s The Face of Another and Woman of the Dunes, Suture is one of great feature debuts – by writer-directors David Siegel and Scott McGehee – and a truly unique piece of cinema.

The wealthy and self-assured Vincent (Michael Harris) meets his blue collar half-brother Clay (Dennis Haysbert) at their father’s funeral and is struck by their similarity. He decides to murder Clay and take his identity, only Clay survives the assassination attempt with no memory and is mistaken for Vincent. The fact that Harris is white and Haysbert is black only complicates a film that probes into the nature of identity.

After viewing an early rough cut, Steven Soderbergh came on board as executive producer and enthusiastic patron. Suture went on to become a hit on the festival circuit, including Sundance where it deservedly won the award for Best Cinematography.

A 1990's gem

This is one of the great movies from the Arrowfilms collection, in my opinion an underrated gem from the 1990's from the directors-duo Siegel and McGehee. It is an original take on a film noir with an experimental approach and Lynchian undertones, but you don't have to be an ArtHouse-movie buff to appreciate this thoroughly enjoyable film. The performances are outstanding and the black-and- white widescreen cinematography is simply gorgeous, and is better rendered than ever on this digital remastered version. The juxtaposition of popular and classical music with the eery imagery is a stroke of genius. People who love Lynch or Cronenberg will certainly love this movie as well. This outstanding dual-format release comes also with a very insightful booklet.
