Scottish filmmaker Simon Arthur impresses with the cool poise, technical flair and unset ling mind games of his exceptional feature debut Silver Tongues. Expanded from his short of the same name, Silver Tongues has echoes of Soderbergh, Atom Egoyan and Michael Haneke as it reveals a darkly playful tale of deception and deceit. Gerry (Lee Tergesen) and Joan (Enid Graham) travel the backwaters of New York indulging their passion for role-playing to dangerous extremes. They enact scenarios designed to challenge, humiliate and manipulate everyone they meet from a newlywed couple to a sceptical police officer. Arthur keeps us constantly guessing about the dynamics of the relationship, creating an original film that is beautifully acted and full of intrigue. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: The State of Independents.
