The Color Wheel is the story of JR (Carlen Altman), an increasingly transient aspiring news-anchor, as she forces her disappointing younger brother Colin (Alex Ross Perry) to embark on a road trip to move her belongings out of her professor-turned-lover’s apartment (Bob Byington).  Traveling through fog-shrouded highways of New England, uncomfortably running into old school-mates, revisiting shared familial history from which they have long since diverged, chaos and calamity are not far behind their beat up Honda Accord.  It can only be a matter of time before JR and Colin arrive at the strangest and most unsettling of resolutions and put to rest their decades of animosity, half-baked sibling rivalry and endless bickering, in his comedic symphony of disappointment and forgiveness.

"Sly, daring, genuinely original and at times perversely brilliant." 
- A.O. Scott, The New York Times

“Director Alex Ross Perry gives a harsh, sarcastic twist to the intimate rivalry of siblings... [he] directs these uproarious rapid-fire flareups with exquisite comic timing and incisive comic framing.”
- Richard Brody, The New Yorker

“Hard to swallow but impossible to ignore, this nihilistic comedy may emerge as a cult touchstone. Sean Price Williams' grainy, monochrome 16mm camerawork imparts a bleak beauty to the unrelieved sameness of the siblings' odyssey and lends particular potency to the rug-pulling finale.”
- Ronnie Scheib, Variety 

“The cinema of the future, I hope.”
– Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, Ebert Presents At The Movies/

 “The Color Wheel has plenty of offbeat style [and] accessibility, being a sheer delight of sarcasm and uneasy wit.”
- Eric Kohn, IndieWire

 “A New Yorker's movie in its purest form.”
- Stéphane Delorme, Cahiers du Cinema
