  • El Biffo's rating of the film Bleu Shut

    The worst kind of experimental hippie cinema. At first I thought it was meant to be viewed while on LSD, but I don't think that would've helped. The clock ticking in the corner was annoying at first, then comforting, when I could see by the clock hands that this film was almost over. Sampled bits of vintage footage from PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC and antique porn provide a few moments of relief but don't redeem this poop
