Co-directed by Tanner King Barklow Here
(The Invisible War) and Israeli Gil Kofman, Lost in the White City is a
fascinating film about a straight couple’s relationship which
disintegrates during a Mediterranean summer in Tel Aviv.
It stars rising indie actor Thomas Dekker as the hard drinking
self-obsessed experimental film maker Kyle and Haley Bennett (The
Equalizer) as the gorgeous aspiring writer Eva.As the film opens, it is evident that
their relationship is compromised. Soon Kyle and Eva are swept into a
precarious and intriguing Israeli environment where menace, seduction
and danger are interlaced with a sultry awareness of each other’s more
preferred sexual choices.
Kyle’s sexual awakening comes in the form of the gorgeous and gregarious
ex-soldier Avi, played by Australian actor Bob Morley. There is a
superb scene where Avi leads Kyle to a bombed out nightclub on the
outskirts of Tel Aviv and Kyle shoots Avi naked in a semi-erotic pose
for his avant-garde film; likening their coupling to that of German
independent director Werner Herzog and actor Klaus Kinski.
