A cinematic experiment based on a short story by author Jonathan Lethem, The Collector dissects one man’s obsessive compulsion for collecting materialistic possessions over the course of his lifetim. The film shows the fragile character at three key stages in his life; from his childhood (actor Lyle Horne) through his troubled twenties (actor Phil Bishop) and into his reclusive forties (actor Adam Lewis), all the while struggling against the neurotic need to hoard, compile, collect.
