Film:The Doctor

From Death In June
Jump to: navigation, search



A surrealist exploration of life dealing with a psychologist inhabiting a world full of colorful characters. He ponders life, visits cafes and vaudeville acts, and monologues to the mute ghost of a deceased child patient, as well as a mysterious griffin, while coming to terms with the death of his young wife, struggling to experience the finer things in life, and trying to figure out what it all means.

Let your mind drift from Iceland to Calcutta in Thomas Nöla’s second feature ‘The Doctor’, the tale of a man haunted by his pseudo-ghost ex-patient (the precocious Miss Marilla Huxley), advised by a griffin in pinstripes and persecuted by a strange faction of pierrot masons and black-face foot soldiers. While wandering his occupied homeland, he will search his mind for the secrets of nature and death.

This man will be THE DOCTOR.

Featuring intoxicating and intoxicated performances by lead Jerry Adams and narrator Douglas P., ‘The Doctor’ and its “bizarrely spooky and absurdly serious beauty” (Baltimore City Paper) can be enjoyed in the privacy of your own home with this witchy DVD release.
