The Idiot

Chronicling a day in the cranky life of a film rental shop proprietor, “The Idiot” captures the struggle between cinephiliac Johnny and his frustrated co-proprietor, Rosie, at odds with his film-dominated view of the world, the crime-havocked recession plaguing his lifeless street, and his customers who alone can save his business from ruin but who are all only ever a film request away from stirring his wrath.

Directed by Arturo M. Merelo and Simon Shaw (UK)
