A wealthy and apathetic New Yorker, Swanson is the prototype of a hipster. Unrelated to this fact (or maybe not), he’s also what’s commonly known as a dickhead. He spends his days doing next to nothing except bothering and ridiculing everyone around him. Rick Alverson films this persona non grata’s everyday life from a distance that makes the film a harsh, generational portrait.
Musician and filmmaker, he’s the leader of the group Spokane. He’s directed four feature lengths, The Builder (10), New Jerusalem (11), The Comedy (12) and Entertainment, selected at festivals like Rotterdam or Sundance.
