THE COLOR WHEEL is the story of two obnoxious people: JR, an aspiring news-anchor, and her brother, Colin. They can’t stand each other and the rest of the world can’t stand them. Now they’re stuck together on a road trip to go to JR’s ex-lover’s apartment and retrieve her stuff from his place. Directed and co-written by Alex Ross Perry, who worked at the legendary video store Kim’s Video while attending NYU film school and has said that he learned more from the former than the latter. And his many influences, both in the classroom and on the store shelves, are present in this completely original film and truly indepdent film.
“Sly, daring, genuinely original, and at times perversely brilliant.” -A.O. Scott, The New York Times
"Alex Ross Perry is a filmmaker who should make us feel good about the altered state of American independent movies." -Wesley Morris, The Boston Globe
"[Co-writers and stars] Perry and Altman's thousand-word-a-minute stream of zingers, delivered in their beautifully paired voices (she's the bass, he's the treble), is more purely entertaining than anything Sorkin or Mamet has ever written." -Phil Coldiron, L.A. Weekly
