The Catastrophe 2011
If he was dead, I guess he would've mentioned it
Plot: This vital contemporary retelling of Hawthorne's Mr. Higginbotham's Catastrophe uses dreamlike imagery, a Bob Dylan song and a poem by Forough Farrokhzad to paint a portrait of Dominicus Pike, the quintessential modern man.
Story: The movie follows Dominicus Pike as he traverses the American Midwest, plying his trade as a cigar salesman, and his dawning realization that he may have sold his soul to a multinational corporation. The main story is interwoven with narrative threads involving the collapse of Dominicus' relationship with his girlfriend, Carlie, and his discovery of what may be a murder plot involving one of his clients, Mohammad "Double Apple" Akbari. Rife with literary allusions and political undertones, this atmospheric and heady brew is dedicated to imprisoned Iranian filmmakers Mohammad Rasoulof and Jafar Panahi.
Did you know: The poem recited by Forough is "Later On" by Forough Farrokhzad.
