As the tide rises, the film crashes beautifully on the coast of Italy, where slow motion drone shots and multiple minute long pans follow the character into a deep, dark world where every part of his psyche is pushed to the limit.
It is a Kafkaesque tale that harkens elements and overtones of German Expressionist cinema with a little bit of Jarmusch-cool. He is an actor that is not afraid to be vulnerable, which is the mark of a great actor – if not a believable one. I have two brothers and a sister and I was the first one, so they wanted me to do something. You know, I was about 9 or 10 and I was in school and people were such assholes about everything, so it was literally, like, “faggot this” and “faggot that.” And it was terrible.
This is exactly where I caught Lou Taylor Pucci, who is an innately gifted actor, well known for playing vulnerable souls and identity seeking characters, like the thumb sucking angst-ridden teen, Justin Cobb in Mike Mills’ 2003 debut feature, alongside Tilda Swinton, Vincent D'Onofrio and Keanu Reeves.
Pucci was also a juror for the short film competition.
Pucci had roles in multiple indie films for the latter part of the decade, and had a leading role playing an autistic man in The Story of Luke (2013), alongside Seth Green.
Lou Taylor Pucci is a famous actor, who is best known for Justin Cobb in Thumbsucker.
He was born on July 27, 1985 in Seaside Height, New Jersey.
