The Cleaner

As a mysterious plague lays waste to Lima (and the world, most likely), a solitary middle-aged man spends his days bagging and tagging the casualties. Once he finds an orphaned boy in a closet, however, his tunnel vision becomes forcibly expanded. First-time writer/director Adrian Saba finds some lovely grace notes within his low-budget apocalypse, but there’s not really enough story here to sustain a feature. Any director who can get major emotional mileage out of a simple cardboard box is definitely one to keep an eye on, however. (ANDREW WRIGHT)
