About the project

Iggy Pop makes his starring debut in this indie thriller as a dying rock star caught in a web of sex, blackmail and murder.

Ageing rock star Bill and his beautiful younger wife Isabelle lead an idyllic life in the rolling hills of Southern Spain. Yet beneath this perfect surface, dark secrets lurk. Storming into the couple’s world comes a dangerous ex-lover hell bent on revenge, and in a racy game of cat and mouse, the hunter becomes the hunted. ‘Blood Orange’ is a sizzling psychological thriller where nothing is quite as it seems.

Some impressions

Press

Empire

“Pop will surprise many with his terse display as a half-blind rock god refusing to succumb meekly to leukaemia…this is Pop’s first lead, and he growls out his lines with a laconic assurance.”

The Guardian

“The screen presence of rock legend Iggy Pop is magnetic. With his six-cylinder growl of a voice and his bourbon and fag ash complexion, he doesn’t need to deliver much in the way of a performance. An entertainingly oversexed chamber piece with echoes of A Bigger Splash or La Piscine, the film unpeels layers of intrigue along with the clothes of its cast. It’s a promising debut for first-time director Toby Tobias.”

The Hollywood Reporter

“Pop’s stunt casting should give it cult appeal in theaters and, more likely, on home formats..There are echoes of Roman Polanski, Sam Peckinpah and Patricia Highsmith in these seductively amoral characters and their sexualized power games. Sergio Leone’s Spanish-shot spaghetti Westerns also exert an influence, notably in scenes of Pop wandering the parched sierra in cowboy hat and stubble, coolly blasting rabbits with a shotgun.”
