Set against the 1950’s “golden age” of American male supremacy, an introverted young photographer (Tye Sheridan) joins a renowned lobotomist (Jeff Goldblum) on a tour to promote the doctor’s recently-debunked procedure.

The year is 1953. Andy, a young, introverted teenager, works as a Zamboni driver at an ice rink where his father is a flamboyant skating instructor. Andy’s mother is institutionalized. When Andy meets Dr. Wallace Fiennes, a famous lobotomist now in the sad decline of his career, the shy young man joins the doctor on a tour of rural mental hospitals. As Fiennes desperately evangelizes for the lobotomy procedure to drum up business, Andy becomes infatuated with a patient and her father and immerses himself in the surreal, burgeoning New Age movement of the American West.

Director Rick Alverson, known for his grim, hypnotic body of work, has crafted another cryptic odyssey through the backroads of America. Pushing his peculiar vision to new heights of design, sound, and story, he captures another standout performance from Tye Sheridan while mixing things up with new players like Jeff Goldblum, Denis Lavant, and Udo Kier.

” ‘The Mountain’ sets forth a profoundly anhedonic vision of America – and humanity – that’s simultaneously upsetting and mesmerizing.”
– NEW YORK TIMES

“Probably best suited for the sort of on-a-loop side room you’d find in a modern art museum, where it could endlessly challenge viewers …”
– THE WRAP

“The Mountain, with its long stretches of quiet, bleak subject matter, and Alverson’s staunch refusal to let us in, or fill in the blanks, creates a genuinely unnerving mood.”
– ROGEREBERT.COM

” ‘The Mountain’ is, after all, a look back at a time when individuality was a curse with a scientifically harsh solution. It’s only appropriate that it unfold with its own distinctive aura of exquisite sterility.”
– LOS ANGELES TIMES
