Lake Tahoe begins when Juan crashes their family car into a post. He desperately tries to have it fixed. His encounters with the sleepy town’s citizens are the fore of this black comedy. He meets a kung fu fanatic, a frustrated rock band vocalist, and an old man alone with his dog. Lake Tahoe has a consistent signature style. For each frame, the shots are taken from a single angle that cuts through the next scene or fades to black. The plot unfolds slowly but with such delicateness and understatement. It is only until the end that we find out why he is too desperate to fix the crashed family car.
