Pincus Finster is in way over his head: trying to find a way to stall his father’s Parkinson’s, halfheartedly taking up yoga to meet girls, and letting his only friend, Dietmar, an aging German illegal alien, get drunk and sleep in the homes they’re supposed to be remodeling. Pincus spends his time stoned and fumbling for some sort of spiritual truth. Seamlessly combining naturalistic storytelling with documentary elements and hints of metaphysic mystery, Pincus is a soulfully handcrafted film that explores the gulf between cynicism and wonder with quiet revelation.
