Hollywood actor Matty moves to Miami in the hopes of marrying his girlfriend. But when she rejects him, Matty goes on an overnight drug binge. Eighteen months later, he returns to Miami to piece together the events of that hazy night—and soon finds out that some questions are best left unanswered.

MUBI's take

Abel Ferrara continued his superlative run of form-shattering features with this woozy tale of a movie star’s drug-addled decline. Released the same year as David Lynch’s Lost Highway, The Blackout plays like that film’s evil twin: an expressionistic fever dream of addiction and fractured identity.
