Bliss

Suffering from a creative block, beautiful Dezzy is struck by existential doubt coupled with a growing addiction to alcohol. Everything falls apart during a nightly journey through the Los Angeles slums...

After Almost Human and The Mind’s eye, Canadian Joe Begos is back with a film he describes as a tribute to East coast exploitation movies (William Lustig, Abel Ferrara, Larry Cohen...) to which he adds his taste for powerful imagery reminiscent of The Neon Demon, and mostly a plot close to Romero's Martin. Superbly shot in 16mm, Bliss is no doubt Joe Begos' most daring film.
