Heat and Sunlight Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P104547~Rob Nilsson~robnilsson]] both directed and starred in Heat and Sunlight. Nilsson plays a San Francisco photographer who has trouble curbing his obsessions. He falls in love with dancer [[Performer~P89451~Consuelo Faust~consuelofaust]], then is unable to shake off his violently jealous impulses when the ardor cools. The musical score by [[Performer~P83754~David Byrne~davidbyrne]] and [[Performer~P89026~Brian Eno~brianeno]] successfully conveys the seismic disturbances in Nilsson's troubled psyche. The film itself lacks cohesiveness, though the individual sequences are for the most part worthwhile. Heat and Sunlight has enough exposed skin and profanity to fully warrant its R rating. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
