Southland Tales is an ensemble piece set in the futuristic landscape of Los Angeles on July 4, 2008, as it stands on the brink of social, economic and environmental disaster. Boxer Santaros is an action star who's stricken with amnesia. His life intertwines with Krysta Now, an adult film star developing her own reality television project, and David Clark, a Hermosa Beach police officer who holds the key to a vast conspiracy.


Director Richard Kelly’s follow-up on the enigmatic cult hit Donnie Darko has run into a critical storm: an unfinished version (according to Kelly) was shown at the Cannes film festival where it was boo-ed and got rotten reviews. But hey, these are probably the same know-nothing snob yobs who boo-ed Darren Aronofsky’s weird and brilliant The Fountain, so who cares? Southland Tales is probably brilliant then . . . at least like The Fountain it sounds like something completely different. (By the way, Southland Tales is only Kelly’s second film.)
