Description: From the director of the ’90’s cult hit The Last Big Thing a modern comedy noir about love, lust, art and the power of the image in today’s culture. Dark Arc tells the story of Viscount Laris, an eccentric modern-day dandy obsessed by the power of art and visual imagery to mold the behavior and psychology of the individual. With his complicit female muse Juxta, he orchestrates an elaborate series of staged visual events for the sole purpose of subliminally influencing the life of a harmless, down-to-earth graphic designer. As Viscount’s visual manipulations escalate his experiments begin to take on the cruel and sinister overtones that will lead the film to its shocking conclusion.
