A deeply disturbing character study of a handsome and sociopathic American in Paris, writer-director Antonio Campos’s Simon Killer hones further the psychological perceptiveness and keen filmmaking craft exhibited in Campos’s acclaimed feature debut Afterschool. Brady Corbet (Melancholia, Thirteen, Martha Marcy May Marlene) plays Simon, a recent college graduate full of promise and potential, who goes to Paris to begin a trip around Europe following a break-up with a long-time girlfriend. 

An outsider adrift upon a profound sense of loss, Simon takes solace in the company of Victoria (Mati Diop of 35 Shots of Rum), a beautiful, young, and mysterious prostitute — and their fateful journey begins…Emotionally compelling and visually stunning, Simon Killer is an examination of casual brutality, profane sexuality, alienation, and desperation, all cut to a killer soundtrack that underscores the borderline psychotic fervor of Simon’s descent. 

The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the UK debut of Antonio Campos’s powerful, hypnotic, and remarkably assured Simon Killer on Blu-ray and DVD.
