Nitehawk Cinema’s LOCAL COLOR and Tribeca Film Festival’s series on New York filmmakers continues with a special screening of APPLESAUCE. Q&A after the screening with writer/director Onur Tukel!
What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done?
Every Tuesday night, radio talk show host Stevie Bricks invites his listeners to call in and share their stories. And tonight, Ron Welz (writer/director Onur Tukel) is ready to share his. But soon after he confesses on the air, Ron finds a severed foot in his laundry… then a cut off finger in his mail… then worse. His life begins to unravel and his marriage begins to fall apart. Someone is tormenting him. Is it his insolent high school student? Is it his best friend? His wife? In a city like New York, there are eight million suspects and each one could have a bone to pick with someone like Ron.
Take dark comedy, mix it with noir, add a dash of horror and stir in some melodrama, and you have the recipe for one of the most original and unusual movies of the year.
