“A twisted riddle with many layers begging to be explored...you will need a lobotomy after this”.......Steve Balderson (dir. Stuck & Firecracker Dikenga.com)
"A surreal and intriguing indie film with a kick-ass soundtrack that will have you thinking long after the credits roll."....Michele “Izzy” Galgana Boston Sci-Fi Film Fest
"Both alluring and jarring, “The Why” draws from the evil tones of early Polanski while shocking the viewer with gritty vignettes of Hooper-like violence. Although the inspired dialogue and linearity is more art house than horror, viewers are still caught in a metaphysical mélange that feels uncomfortably disorienting. “The Why” balances skillfully framed cinematography while also providing enough lens glare to make JJ Abrams blush. The resulting aesthetic however, causes the viewer to rub their eyes just to ensure they haven’t become wedged into the dream world too. “The Why” exploits its dreary and oddly dulcet worlds by pairing the strange scenes with equally ambient music. The combination is like listening to “Dark Side of the Moon” on headphones while watching “Suspiria” on an old VHS tape. This eerily fascinating world is laden with drug use and off tempo violence. Ultimately, viewers are left paranoid but idealistic, as the undertones of love are spread strategically through the film. In other words, even when faced with the unbearable pain of regret or resentment, we can still find the luminance of love in our darkest hours.... Mike G Ain't it Cool News
“Eminently weird”.....The Bostonist
The Why is an experiential meditation on death, on loves lost, the duality of mind, and ultimately the nature of attachment and memory turned obsession. It takes place simultaneously in life, and in the nowhere place (a place of memory). The film revolves around three characters at the moment of death, where they find themselves existing in a place absent of love, absent of hate and absent of reason. The tighter they hold on to the illusion of what was- the farther out they spiral into a dark, surreal, suspended animation of the mind.
The Why was written, produced, and directed by Anthony Pedone, Eli Higgins, and Stephen Floyd.
