USA (2011) Dir. Alex Ross Perry. Perry’s second film is a dark comedy that earns the designation with its sarcastic and shallow siblings on a journey through an even more hostile world. The film ultimately emerges as a twisted and empathetic ode to the protective rivalry of sibling relationships. Due to its beautiful 16mm black and white cinematography and perfect execution of many different styles of comedy from slapstick to sharp banter, The Color Wheel emerges as both hilarious and moving.
