Storyline

Self condemned to the immense and boundless prison of the Mojave desert, Phoenix leads a life of forced isolation, living by himself in a house as far away as possible from the rest of the world. Phoenix does one thing and one thing only: he digs holes. Every month he digs a hole in the middle of nowhere and buries something. The last stronghold of society stands with the man that frequently delivers his mail. When one day the delivery doesn't happen by the hand of his trustworthy mailman, but by that of the beautiful and quizzical Ariel, Phoenix's life derails in an escalation that leads him to dangerous consequences which will be impossible to escape.

Calico Skies
17 August 2017 | by IvanWongSee all my reviews

In the first film in the states, Italian director Valerio exhibited at the center with this well-cast and well-cast independent film that sees Tom Sizemore as good character as usual; His acting is calibrated, in his movements, in his strangeness; to mention in the cast also Vincent Pastore and Robert La Sardo who however appear in two small roles; in other roles we find actress Christina Bennett Lind, Kiowa Gordon, Charlotte De Bruyne, Marco Khan, and Italian actors since the film is an Italian-American co-production; the real protagonist of the film is however the desert, with its spectacular landscapes; in short is a beautiful independent movie to see, surely better than many other high budget movies, a gem! Calico Skies win!
