Austin Lynch, Matthew Booth, 75 min
United States, 2017
A dark and evocative work between documentary and abstraction, which is more than just spiritually akin to Lynch senior.
Something is moving in the shadows in the dark and evocative 'Gray House', where raw and real scenes from life in the American working class play out in five settings, which could feature in a grim horror movie. The body's structural qualities, the encounter with mysterious strangers, the fascination of empty spaces and the absurdity of work. Documentary filmmaking meets the visual arts in an evocative hybrid, which is more than just spiritually akin to Lynch senior, but which defines its very own, original territory of cinematic abstraction between dream and reality. 'Gray House' is an uncompromising work, which insists on the fundamentally enigmatic interplay between form and meaning, and on the dark space of the cinema as the ideal place to bring the two elements together, without losing sight of socially and politically charged realities.
