  • Wellness

    2008. USA. Written and directed by Jake Mahaffy. With Jeff Clark, Paul Mahaffy. The diminishing world of the door-to-door salesman, an American archetype, becomes a poetic meditation on spiritual crisis in Mahaffy's astonishing feature Wellness, winner of the narrative Grand Jury award at the 2008 South by Southwest Film Festival. Jeff Clark, the star of Mahaffy's debut film War, gives a performance filled with pathos and quiet desperation as a salesman traveling through the wintry Northeast hawking a product line of dubious health supplements, only to become aware, slowly and tragically, of his own complicity in a crooked pyramid scheme. 90 min.
