Festival 2020 cancelled.

Frank is a lawyer in one of those big insurance firms, and a capital-A Asshole. The kind of dirtbag that lives a mediocre existence in the suburbs with his estranged wife and ditto dog, yet breaks out in a happy dance whenever he can make someone else’s life miserable. When he finds a loophole in the life insurance of a deceased fire fighter, which saves the company a shitload of money, he expects to get a big bonus. And that calls for a celebration! It’s Tuesday but what the hell, he and a colleague go out on the town. It turns out like your regular Tuesday night, with random guru-type dudes at a wild house party offering them a brand new, yet-to-be-tested-on-animals hallucinogenic drug. Name of the drug? The Wave! About the ensuing chaos we say only 2 things: 1) it’s proof of the natural law that states that going out on a week night is never ever a good idea, and to be undertaken at one’s own risk (see: the BIFFF), and 2) Enjoy the trip… It’s Gille Klabin’s first feature, but his visual talent is obvious, especially during the psychotropic parts. Justin Long (GALAXY QUEST, JEEPERS CREEPERS, DRAG ME TO HELL) stars as Frank, a guy you just love to hate.
