Spencer Parsons: The Dream Is Always the Same


Bite Radius (30 min.), the centerpiece of this shorts program by Northwestern University professor Spencer Parsons, is a gruesome tribute to 70s grindhouse cinema in which a party girl helps a male friend dismember the corpse of a woman he thinks he may have murdered during a drunken one-night stand. Parsons executes some nimble camerawork in the confined single location and scores some funny satirical jabs at millennials (the heroine agrees to participate mainly so she can document the grisly process on her cell phone). The second longest piece, Chainsaw Found Jesus (2010, 21 min.), is slightly less cynical, a character-driven comedy about a divorced father who takes his 11-year-old son with him to score cocaine.
