EDDIE - THE SLEEPWALKING CANNIBAL

TFF 2012 Directed by Boris Rodriguez
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE EDDIE - THE SLEEPWALKING CANNIBAL [TFF 2012]
Film_138155999_poster
Onetime art star Lars Olafssen is all washed up. Too uninspired to paint, he accepts a teaching stint at a small-time art school in podunk Koda Lake, Canada, where he does double duty as caretaker for the offbeat town's neighborhood weirdo, Eddie. Eddie doesn't speak, doesn't have any friends, and is generally regarded by the townsfolk as a harmless loon, but to Lars he quickly becomes a trusted companion. As their unlikely friendship evolves, a dark and violent secret about Eddie's nocturnal impulses begins to surface. A secret that stirs long-dormant artistic urges in the creatively stunted Lars. A secret that he feels compelled to nurture….

A unique and satirical dark comedy, Eddie the Sleepwalking Cannibal masterfully balances its quirky humor and its cartoonish eruptions of grotesque violence as Lars finds himself torn between his duty to his friend and his duty to his work. As the situation gets increasingly out of control, Eddie remains ultimately a story about friendship, and also a story about art—and how far into the abyss one is willing to go for either.
