Wilcox Denis Côté

Films index A to Z

A man goes into the woods alone. We know nothing about him, apart from his military-style attire with a nametag indicating he might be called Wilcox. Is he a traumatized veteran, a survivalist, a desperate man or even a philosopher-hermit? A documentary-style fictional film, a minimalist adventure yarn haunted by reality, Wilcox is both simple and mysterious. With encounters whose dialogue is inaudible, a sound design that transports reality into the world of the mind, and strangely filtered images to distance us from Wilcox, the latest film by Denis Côté is a nonjudgmental perspective on people who decide to remove themselves from the world, giving no clues as to why.
