    Static is a remarkable, but unheard of movie. It remains in the dungeons of obscurity due to no DVD release. It's a real shame that unique films like this don't get around more often. Gordon starts the film as a keyboardist. He soon walks away from his band and we later see him on the assembly line for crucifixes. This is a bizarre, yet interesting job. One that many would have never thought of. With so many crucifixes out there, somebody must assemble them, and the job itself tells a lot about our protagonist. He is part of religion on an assembly line. Every day he attaches Jesus to the cross hundreds of times. Gordon also decides to keep the deformed factory defects. On his wall are many different Jesus'. These could be commenting on the mutilating of religion itself, or how Gordon finds beauty in all of God's creations. Even those that go against the norm. Gordon is also working on an invention which he keeps a secret from the town. The film plays it very straight, and is constantly burrowing its way through your mind. It's a truly intelligent and sensational film, with a thoughtful and well constructed script. The performances are spot on, with Gunton as the eccentric cousin, really standing out. If you are bored with the predictability of films that are simply extensions of their trailers, hunt down this film.

    I have been searching off & on for YEARS for any information about this fabulous, joyous, uplifting, inspiring independent film that I saw only once at the local grunge flea-pit in my student days. All I could remember about it was the title, year, no cast, no director....nothing. Then I join Flixster &, voila, find the info the 1st time I look!! Remarkable. At least now I will stand a better chance of being able to locate a copy. This is SO's like finding the Holy Grail!! Oh, yes.....& I recommend this UBER-highly to absolutely everyone!

    Quirky, surrealistic, arty, eccentric, fun nonconformism. Goes well with the film Powder.
