In near-future America, film critic Noah Body uploads his reviews to an underread “Content Aggregator.” He dreams of making his own film, free of the hackery of commercial cinema. Amidst his movie reviews, we learn that his apartment in the “vintage slum” of Miniature Aleppo has been stripped of furniture, after his wife ran off with his best friend, who Noah believes has possessed his body. He’s in the midst of an escalating grudge match with a vending machine tycoon. And he’s infatuated with a doctor who has diagnosed him with a “disease of thought.” Exhausted by days spent watching flicks featuring monks with a passion for rock and roll and slashers featuring rampaging hairdressers, Noah is determined to create his own masterpiece, written by, directed by and starring himself.
