From the gifted lens of filmmaker Peter Mettler, The Top Of His Head is an avant-garde fairy tale years ahead of its time – a genuinely mind-altering experience that blends dramatic narrative with imagistic cinema, inventing nothing less than new ways of seeing.
The Top Of His Head is the story of Gus Victor, a satellite dish salesman whose ordered world is turned upside down by a radical and alluring performance artist. A cryptic note left by Lucy leads Gus on a quest which draws him out of the tyranny of the material world, to open his perceptions in the most unexpected and awesome ways. By the time Gus discovers that the object of his search is his own self, that self has altered, concluding the film in a mysterious, yet stunning fashion.
