In his feature debut, Alex Ross Perry was loosely inspired by Thomas Pynchon's "Gravity's Rainbow." Taking place just after World War II, the film follows the shambling young soldier Tyrone S. as he wanders through the forest looking for German V2 rockets and encounters a number of inexplicable figures, including an eyepatch-wearing Englishman, a garrulous octopus and the girlfriend he left behind to join the army.

Featuring: Riley O'Bryan, Kate Lyn Sheil, Roy Berkeley, Bruno Meyrick Jones, Ben Shapiro and the voice of Eugene Mirman

Written, Directed, Produced and Edited by Alex Ross Perry
Cinematography by Sean Price Williams
Music by Preston Spurlock

"Exerts a certain minimalist hypnotic thrall, greatly helped by the vibrant green palette of Sean Price William’s handheld camerawork, an audaciously eclectic soundtrack and the idiotic conviction of Riley O’Bryan’s exhausted, shrubbery-navigating GI."
-Ronnie Schieb, Variety

"From its surplus-store WWII pageantry to its hot, fuzzy cinematography somehow suggestive of both Bolex and Instagram at once, Impolex is an uncommonly honest paean to millennial fecklessness."
-Joseph Jon LanthierSlant
