Walls In The City
Four years in the making, Walls in the City is a triptych on urban alienation. In this feature debut, director Jim Sikora, known for Bullet on a Wire and Bring Me the Head of Geraldo Rivera, offers meditations on emotional violence.
In Walls in the City, Sikora's fringe-dwellers struggle to shape their own fates amidst the flats and taverns of an indifferent and often hostile environment. Cutting performances by Paula Killen (Mad Dog and Glory, Bullet on a Wire), Tony Fitzpatrick (Philadelphia), Bill Cusack (Ed Wood, The Fugitive), Michael James (Code of Silence), and David Yow (vocalist for The Jesus Lizard) lead an array of vibrantly discordant characterizations that compliment a bold and inventive visual style.
