Institute History

  • 1994 Sundance Film Festival


He's kind of an Elvis . . . only more of a Frank . . . but I see a little Liberace somewhere around the eyes. Who is he? He is the Minotaur, and he is an American icon. It seems like a camp cult classic at first jolt, but this dark tale digs deep in its skewed investigation into the excesses of pop culture. Highly skilled filmmaking and haunting performances, not to mention some killer art direction, take you into a world that can only exist in the mind of a superstar in his final performance.

That's all I will say. . not wanting to give anything away. Film Threat magazine said, "Minotaur would end up at a theater near you, provided you lived in Berlin, Toronto, San Francisco. . . ." Stand back, Park City! This is for you, and you get it first.
