Dir. Jonathan Dee, US, 2014, 12mins
Adapted from the eponymous story in Patricia Highsmith’s short story collection Nothing that Meets the Eye, A Mighty Nice Man tells the haunting tale of two small, bored, sisters in a dusty Deep South town, who vie for the attention of a mysterious stranger. He seems like a mighty nice man, but is he?

This summer rather than sending Creatures of the Night on holiday until the night’s start to darken we’re giving it a little shuffle around to a new spot in our schedule. We hope that this will help a few new faces explore our delightful cult film strand even if the sheen of respectability makes things a little less fun. Don’t worry, it’ll be returning to the joyous witching hour of 11pm come September.

Critical reaction:
  • Writer-director Alex Ross Perry crafts this haunting, affecting psycho-drama around spellbinding, awards-quality work from Elisabeth Moss ★★★★

    Kim Newman, EMPIRE

  • A masterwork of tone and mood... the images are of a difficulty level, an intricacy, and a precision in visual composition and performance alike, that link Perry's ambitions and talents to the refractive opacities and cinematic atonalities of such classic modernists as Michelangelo Antonioni and Alain Resnais.
