Alistair Banks Griffin’s The Wolf Hour | 2019 Sundance Film Festival

Once again placing his player(s) through the ringer, Alistair Banks Griffin moves from outdoorsy existentialism and moral quicksand in (2011’s Two Gates of Sleep) to a writer’s block so severe (agoraphobia and quasi pathological transgressions) that only a burning building catharsis will save the soul sophomore film in The Wolf Hour. We were at the world premiere at Sundance, where Dylan managed to speak to Griffin and supporting player Kelvin Harrison Jr. (who was brought onboard because he had worked with Naomi Watts on Luce).
