There is no Here “here.” A character simply named “Old White Male” holds court in the lobbies of various apartment buildings in Buenos Aires and expounds with measured disgust on death, consciousness, and the state of contemporary human relations. The man’s mostly unsolicited remarks form an unsparing, stitched-together modern-day monologue that alternates between absurd and chilling, reasonable, and grotesque.
Filmed in Buenos Aires, Heinz Emigholz’s spare continuation – and sardonic distillation – of certain themes explored in THE LAST CITY is morbid, confrontational, and hilarious.
“While not narratively connected to THE LAST CITY, THE LOBBY is a necessary companion piece that distills many ideas from CITY into an impressive one-man display and generational critique.” –The Film Stage
