FADE is an “intriguing blend” of “Lynchian nightmare, lo-fi B-movie aesthetic and the obsessive, claustrophic atmosphere of Memento” … with “impressive cinematography and editing” and a “nerve-jangling modernist score” that “helps breed an atmosphere of dread.” —Andrew O’Hehir, Salon
"A wonderful independent picture. Exquisite direction is finely complemented by a sharp script and impressive acting." —James Quinton, Open Wide Magazine
An "intense performance" from David Connolly. —New York Magazine
Arthur Dichter thinks he is dying of insomnia, but the reality is much more frightening. In this surreal puzzle film, Dichter turns from his wife to a private journal to record his deepest fears. Anna knows her husband lives in a waking nightmare where delusions and reality blend, but is powerless to help him. As Arthur’s disease gives way to despair, loneliness, and alienation, he and Anna hang onto their last shred of hope.
This atmospheric film turns narrative and chronology inside out to find the darkest corners of the human spirit. Featuring a soundtrack from improvisational legends AMM, Art Bears, and Stephen O’Malley’s Ginnungagap.
