Bad Fever (2012)

Critic Reviews for Bad Fever
As the camera skitters spastically around its troubled schlub, the film becomes a muddy, minimalist moan of desperation.
Audley, a helmer in his own right, somehow infuses Eddie with a compelling presence that exerts an offbeat authenticity.
From its opening white-letters-on-red-background credit sequence to its diligent focus on a wayward loner drifting about the outskirts of society and sanity, Bad Fever has the empathetic soul of '70s American filmmaking.
Defa exerts delicate control over his incendiary material and evokes emotional terrors with a sympathetic directness; his raw-toned drama is quietly hectic and brutally poignant.
