Limited edition clear vinyl. 

The avant-garde icon Scott Walker scored this film about a fictional 9-year-old dictator, and it's one of the best things Walker has done since the still-unsettling The Drift.

It turns out the ambitious 28-year-old filmmaker and 73-year-old avant-garde music luminary are a good pair. Corbet manages to take his film - a period piece examining the broken family life of Prescott, a fictional 9-year-old fascist dictator in the making - to the same dynamic extremes Scott Walker has favored in his music since his 1995 watershed Tilt. Often, Walker’s writing threatens to overpower the movie, building up near-absurd levels of tension at moments where there might otherwise be none: Prescott and his remote mother (Bérénice Bejo) walking woodenly to Mass, or pacing around their cavernous home in the French countryside.
