Ape

Rated NR 86 min. 2014

Welcome to economically depressed Grand Rapids, Michigan, the city of director Joel Potrykus. Here we find the listless Trevor Newandyke (a brilliant Joshua Burge), a sociopath, comic failure and arsonist. His efforts to wrestle a smile from his audience with his stand-up monologues lead to one flop after another. His jokes give off a desperate, sarcastic vision, expressing a true punk sense of humour that forestalls any kind of public support. When he's not trying to invent pathetic jokes in front of his bathroom mirror, Trevor likes to set fire to rubbish bins and gets off on the sound of throwing Molotov cocktails at his neighbours' homes. Trevor's life is a concentration of trouble, absurd meetings and discussions, public humiliation, solitary wanderings and long moments of exhaustion spent between the walls of his small room. One day a man dressed as the Devil offers him a deal.
