Max leaves his lakeside town to live with his father on the fringe of suburban Arizona. Both fever dream and quiet trip, PAVILION creates a deep and ethereal world, showing us an innocent way of life coming apart at the seams, constructing an indelible image of the enigma of youth.
Languidly drifting through the mystical Arizona landscape, Tim Sutton’s acclaimed debut has a dreamy listlessness reminiscent of works by Gus Van Sant and Pedro Costa. Drenched in melancholic reveries, the film captures the ephemerality of youth that quietly slips through one’s fingers like sand.
