Absurda, Industrial Entertainment and First Look Studios present My Son, My Son What Have Ye Done, the first collaboration between legendary filmmakers David Lynch and Werner Herzog arriving on DVD September 14. Academy Award Nominees Michael Shannon, Chloë Sevigny, and Willem Dafoe headline this psychological thriller, written and directed by Herzog, produced by Lynch, and featuring Grace Zabriskie, Udo Kier, and Brad Dourif.
The film plus special features will be available on DVD September 14 for a suggested retail price of $24.98. The extras include: 5.1 Dolby sound, commentaries by Herzog, writer Herb Golder and producer Eric Bassett; interviews with Golder and Herzog; plus behind-the-scenes footage. The bonuses include Plastic Bag, a short film by director Ramin Bahrani (Goodbye Solo) that traces the epic, existential journey of a plastic bag voiced by Herzog.
My Son, My Son What Have Ye Done is loosely based on the mysterious true crime story of a young stage actor who, obsessed with a Greek tragedy he’s rehearsing, slays his own mother with a sword. David Jenkins of Time Out London gave the film five stars, calling it: “dazzling and utterly distinctive.” Dennis Dermody of Paper raved: “One of the Best Films of the Year.” Keith Uhlich of Time Out New York said: “Mesmerizing strangeness … recalls the cowriter-director’s 1976 masterpiece, Heart of Glass.” V.A. Musetto of The New York Post called it: “A surreal descent into a twilight zone created by the twisted sensibilities of two cinematic geniuses.”
