A 666-Character Review of ‘Tilt (2017)’

Tilt follows Joseph Burns, a struggling Los Angeles documentarian, in his disturbing and allegorical descent into madness. At first glance, the plot takes shape as a played-out straight white male who feels slighted by his wife’s neediness in her pregnancy. However, the use of recent election coverage ties in with Burns’s new project shedding light on the falsehoods of the supposed American Dream. Rather than laying on the blood and guts, viewers are left to connect dots and focus on the bigger picture. Tilt gets meta without hitting you over the head with it (pun intended) and solidifies itself as a must-see piece of politically-relevant independent cinema.
