New Release: Erasing David DVD

Erasing David movie scene

Someone is always watching in Erasing David.

Erasing David, a strange little 2010 documentary, arrived on DVD from FilmBuff and MPI on June 28, 2011, for the list price of $24.98.

We haven’t seen this film yet, but we’re intrigued by the set-up: British actor-filmmaker David Bond (Pie in the Sky) sets out to investigate how much information about himself can be accessed by the government, private investigators and surveillance companies.

So, he “disappears” for 30 days, leaving his pregnant wife and child behind and heading off on a hop-skip-and-jump trajectory across the U.K. and Europe. Off and running, Bond hires a pair of British private detectives to follow his trail, see how much information they can dig up on him after he has gone “underground” and learn if they can track him down.

Erasing David sounds like a dozen contemporary spy thrillers we’ve seen over the past few years, but as it’s a documentary, I’m thinking it hits a little closer to home.

A selection at the 2010 Independent Film Festival Boston and the 2010 SXSW Film Festival, Erasing David premiered in the U.S. on DVD.

Here’s the trailer, which is pretty creepy:
