Movie Info

Tim Sutton's debut feature, likened to films by Gus Van Sant and Pedro Costa, follows a laconic teenager (Max) who moves from an idyllic lakeside town to his father's home in arid suburban Arizona. With mesmerizing imagery of hot summer bike rides and cool lake-bound dives, Pavilion captures the ephemerality and reverie of youth and the fragility of adolescent friendships. A haunting score by the Sea and Cake's Sam Prekop shadows the storyline, echoing its secrets and shouldering its mysteries. (C) Factory25

  • Sutton's approach is observation: We're not so much pulled into a narrative as watching images float in ethereal atmospheres.

    April 18, 2013 | Rating: 3/4
  • Observant but not revealing, free-form but not quite experimental, the obliquely titled "Pavilion" is a mood piece in search of a construct.

  • If you're already on the movie's wavelength, it can be entrancing. If not, "Pavilion" may come off as flat and aimless.

  • Mr. Sutton tends toward quiet. And while his characters don't say a lot in these 70 ephemeral minutes, he says enough to make you wonder what's next.

    February 28, 2013 | Rating: 5/5
  • A startlingly perceptive first feature.

  • The beauty of the footage is undeniable, and the aimlessness never overstays its welcome as the film documents that strange stretch in our lives when nothing seems to matter more than the present moment, suspended in a sort of idle immortality.
