“The Builder carves a unique, welcome mental space.”

— David Gordon Green

Jagjaguwar is extremely honored to present as its first-ever feature film release the debut film by writer/director R. Alverson. The Builder (released July 27 on DVD) is bold in its subtleties, and finds Alverson trekking beyond the emotional and existential territories of his work in Jagjaguwar band Spokane. Here, he establishes a cinematic voice that is timeless, yet desperately needed in the stylization and snark of our time. While the movie deals with escapism by way of a character’s self-made isolation, it serves us, its viewers, as a retreat from cinematic escapism, a rare opportunity to look good and deep at disillusionment and disappointment, accepting “the real” over redemption.
