  • An Oversimplification of Her Beauty

    2012. USA. Written and directed by Terence Nance. With Alisa Becher, Jc Cain, Dexter Jones, Nance. A highlight of New Directors/New Films 2012, Nance’s inventive and charming An Oversimplification of Her Beauty defies easy categorization. Using documentary footage, animation, and Nance’s own hypnotic score, it playfully ponders, reenacts, and explodes the director’s own unrequited love affair, even drafting in Nance’s would-be paramour as co-star. Formally audacious, utterly sincere, and impossibly cool, Oversimplification yokes themes of romantic indecision and interpersonal communication in the digital age to larger dialogues about the nature of memory and the meaning of life. 90 min.
