Directed by Hal Hartley | 1989

With Adrienne Shelly, Robert John Burke, Chris Cooke

"An offbeat relationship study with dialogue pitched somewhere between Jim Jarmusch deadpan and the rhythms of a Samuel Beckett play."
—The A.V. Club

Indie maven Hal Hartley’s first feature is a characteristically dark, deadpan comedy about an apocalypse-obsessed Long Island teen (Shelly) who falls for a mysterious stranger (Burke). But who is he really? A priest? A murderer? A mass murderer? Shot in just 12 days, this winning slice of offbeat Americana heralded Hartley’s arrival as one of the era’s most intriguing independent voices.
