Part of Film series BAMcinemaFest 2019
Directed by Rick Alverson | 2018

With Tye Sheridan, Jeff Goldblum, Hannah Gross

Outsider provocateur Rick Alverson (The Comedy, BAMcinemaFest 2012) returns with another hypnotic, surreal odyssey into the dark side of the American psyche. Set in a despairing, Edward Hopper-esque vision of 1950s America, The Mountain follows Andy (Tye Sheridan), a taciturn teenage Zamboni operator who, following the death of his father, begins working with the mysterious Dr. Wallace Fiennes (Jeff Goldblum, weaponizing his idiosyncratic charm to sinister effect), a libidinous lobotomist who peddles a most ghoulish “cure.” Featuring synchronized ice skating routines, spacey xylophone-set dance numbers, and supporting turns by cult icons Udo Kier and Denis Lavant, The Mountain is an eerie, enigmatic fable that envisions postwar America not as a land of promise but as a graveyard of dreams.
