Director Mylo Butler’s Sundown Town feels very timely with a mix of queer and racial commentary.
We follow an interracial couple travelling back to New York from California who are targeted by bigoted police officers after stopping off in a small town for petrol.
The violence scenes are quite uncomfortable to watch but while some of the reactionary may feel justified it feels like the film ends when its just getting going.
Sundown Town feels like a film with potential but isn’t fully fulfilled by its conclusion.
Sundown Town screened as part of the Soho Horror Film Festival – Pride Edition.
