With some festival films never finding a proper theatrical release, we were relieved that Antonio Campos‘ Sundance debut and sophomore effort Simon Killer at least picked up distribution during the festival this year. We gave his Afterschool follow-up a rave review and now, after months of waiting, we’ve finally got some news on when we can see the next film from the group that gave us last year’s brilliant Martha Marcy May Marlene.

When he makes friends with a prostitute (Mati Diop), his world starts to unravel. Check out both posters below (with the Killer poster by Brandon Schaefer) to compare as we wait for an official trailer.

Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of [...]
