Daily Dose Pick: Zenith


A post-apocalyptic, paranoid, Baroque fantasy, Zenith is set in a future in which geneticists have eradicated unhappiness, giving rise to a black market in pain-inducing drugs — and one man’s self-destructive quest to break through.

A visually stunning art-house Blade Runner for a generation in thrall to sex, violence, conspiracy, and urban tribalism, the film fits its “retro-futuristic steampunk thriller” tag-line perfectly. Its many plot twists innovatively even cross over into social media, drawing viewers into the mystery at its heart with engagement far beyond the film itself.

Watch the Zenith mystery unfold, follow the phenomenon on Facebook, find upcoming screenings, and peruse the ever-growing clips archive online.
