The stimulating streets and wondrous natural beauty of San Francisco come alive in this moody, sexually charged film. It’s Halloween night in The City. Quiet twenty-something Jasper is hanging with his cocky high school pal Mark and their friend Lily. Joined by Mark’s friend and sometimes lover Caleb, the group’s epic, all-night journey begins in the center of the Halloween universe: The Castro.
When the massive mob of costumed partiers becomes too overwhelming, the foursome make off for less populated places. As they wander the streets in search of adventure, Mark and Jasper engage in a complicated cat-and-mouse game in which surprising emotions emerge and several haunting truths are revealed. Delivering deep, understated performances, the ensemble cast brings the inner lives of each character to the surface.
Writer-director Gabriel Fleming’s hypnotic film uses a non-linear narrative style, gorgeous camera-work and eerie, evocative music to create a beautiful and disturbing urban dreamscape. From the fluorescent Zen of a westbound 5 Fulton bus to the magical music of fog horns up close, The Lost Coast captures the sublime rhythms and mysterious energy of a night in San Francisco as four lost young people search for identity and connection.
Solace follows a lonely young man as he heads out for a late-night hookup, but when he meets his perfect stranger, he gets more than he bargained for. — BRENDAN PETERSON
