Movie Info

Fired, dumped, evicted Eli leaps at the chance to escape the city on an errand upstate. Plagued by strange illness, his journey culminates in an affair with a woman who shares his habit of eating hair. Xander Robin's genre-defying feature debut flings the audience on a roller-coaster ride of emotions--lovingly balanced by two vulnerable actors, a pulsating soundtrack and gritty, colorful cinematography.

Critic Reviews for Are We Not Cats

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

But the singular aesthetic is gritty, beautiful and expressive, and somehow, you want to root for the love story of Eli and Anya, thanks to the charismatic performances of [Michael Patrick] Nicholson and [Chelsea] Lopez.

"Are We Not Cats" is a well-put-together film with a lot of striking imagery, but, as you may have already inferred, something of a specialty item.

Feb 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Robin uses well-timed jolts and gross-out moments to awaken his solitary characters from their stupor, to shock them into acknowledging that their existence isn't confined to the soul's protective shell.

Lopez and Nicholson also appeared in Robin's short film of the same name, on which this longer version is based, and the roles hang on them comfortably, even at their most grotesque.

And while very much a film of two unequal halves, there's more than enough cinematic chutzpah on display here, especially in the early sections, to confirm the Floridian writer-director as a name to watch.

It's DP Matt Clegg who transforms Are We Not Cats into something so wonderfully weird on a visual level, that you can't help but become smitten by Eli and Anya's blossoming, albeit highly unconventional, relationship.
