A lonely and mysterious man roams the streets, creeps into deserted places and lets the days pass. His story writes itself. Is he a deserter? A former soldier? A survivalist? A free and wandering spirit or a scarred soul on the run? Only his name is recognizable on his camouflage jacket: WILCOX. Denis Côté dedicates his wordless, documentary-like film to a civilization-refuser who, following the example of Christopher McCandless and Dab Aabye, seeks his salvation away from human settlements and beyond their control. ""I want to attack the building blocks of cinema: Image, sound, editing and narrative." In Wilcox, Côté reduces the narrative to its bare essentials, relying on these building blocks to convey most of the emotion." (Cinema Scope)
