A Life was shot over the course of six years. It is Frank Cole’s wordless account of a soul unhinging. It features the director as a man who spends the first half of the movie obsessively sealing an empty apartment following a woman’s departure, and the second half lost and wandering the Sahara desert, where it was filmed. A Life replicates the often frankly disturbing experience of being trapped inside someone else’s neurosis.
