LAFF 2012: David Nordstrom Has An Axe to Grind in Exclusive Look at ‘Pincus’

By  · Published on June 13th, 2012

Earlier this week, we got a look at David Fenster’s Pincus in the form of a funny and insightful little trailer, and now we get a chance to see lead actor David Nordstrom in costume as the eponymous Pincus. Well, “costume” in the sense that he’s not wearing a shirt and has decided to accessorize with a weirdly shiny cowboy hat and one heck of an axe. Wait, Pincus isn’t a Deliverance remake…is it?

No, no, it’s not! Fenster’s film blends together narrative and documentary styles to tell the tale of two Pincus men – Nordstrom’s lovable loser David and his ailing father (played by Fenster’s own dad, Paul Fenster). It’s an emotional and personal story, but hey, it’s also one that involves an axe and questionable head apparel, so we’re likely in for some chuckles, too. Check out our exclusive still after the break, along with screening information for Pincus, which will premiere at LAFF this week.

Pincus will have its World Premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 16th, 2012 at 810PM with an additional screening on June 21st at 740PM.
