Earlier today I sent the Vimeo link for this film (below) to a friend. Ended up watching the whole damn thing twice through for the who-knows-how-manyeth time.
Hickcox’s feature “Soft Matter” is the show stopper (about graffiti artists, mad scientists and an angry sea god materializing out of a janitorial bucket) but “Slow Creep” is one of the oddest, most genuinely intelligent little wonders I’ve come across in a very long time. Hickcox works in “familiar” genre territory, but thinks in strange tones and pacings that are all his own.
