  • Tiger Tail in Blue

    2012. USA. Written and directed by Frank V. Ross. With Anthony J. Baker, Allison Latta, Megan Mercier, Ross. A subtle and affecting naturalistic drama, this sixth feature by Chicago-based “mumblecore” writer-director Ross focuses on a recently married couple—Chris (played by Ross himself), an aspiring writer who waits tables at night, and Melody (Rebecca Spence), a high school teacher—whose conflicting work schedules keep them apart. Chris finds a more palpable kinship, and glimmering sexual tension, with Brandy (Mercier), a sassy restaurant colleague. Shot by Mike Gibisser, this is a beautifully calibrated, emotionally compelling piece of observational cinema. 76 min.
