Director: Amy Seimetz, 2012, 82 min.
A sweaty fever dream, this beige and garishly colored Florida noir was filmed under the oppressive bright light of high noon on 16mm by Jay Keitel. After producing and acting in dozens of indie films, Amy Seimetz makes her directorial debut with this lovers-on-the-run film starring Kate Lyn Sheil and Kentucker Audley, who both give astonishing, unforgettable performances as a couple caught in an electric current of panic while trying desperately to escape everything. “In short, what Seimetz accomplishes is a unity of camera style, acting style, editing style, and narrative rhythm; it’s no small feat to make a small film this smartly assured . . . All of this is laid out with the efficiency of good cheapo B noir; there’s more than a hint of Poverty Row craft to the way Sun Don’t Shine compacts its pulp premise.” Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, MUBI.
