Waterloo Records

Following his acclaimed debut HAM ON RYE, Tyler Taormina's hypnotic follow-up is a midnight mosaic that reveals a suburban town steeped in alienation. It's the middle of the night, but things are far from quiet; as the camera peers into the late-night happenings of various residents, we witness a number of them quietly escape into the dark... on rollerblades. Drawing on 1960's European art cinema and 1990's kid's TV in equal measure, HAPPER'S COMET presents striking individual vignettes that unfurl like a collective dream. Mesmerizing and meditative, the film solidifies Taormina's gift for transforming everyday banality into uncanny cinema.
