A Shape of Things to Come

(Lisa Marie Malloy & J.P. Sniadecki, 2020, USA, 77 minutes)

Playing like a cross between Harvard's Sensory Ethnography Laboratory and Stan Brakhage, Lisa Marie Malloy and J.P. Sniadecki's documentary A Shape of Things to Come observes a cultural outsider by the name of Sundog as he lives his life alone in the Sonora Desert--hunting, extracting poison from a toad, facing down border patrol agents as he sees fit to do so. Using a spare plot and an approach to which "fly on the wall" is perhaps too generous a description, A Shape of Things to Come brings the viewer into a lifestyle of living off the land to an extreme not often depicted.
