Flying Lotus’ first feature follows the survivors of a devastating earthquake in Los Angeles as they star in a series of surreal intervened vignettes that include mutants, bodily fluids and a peculiar newscast.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
Michel Gondry as a 4chan troll? Eraserhead for millennials? Quentin Duplex on xanax? DaDaDaDaDaDa? Ray Trecartin's new video art piece? Jon Rafman? Wait, Aphex Twin? Truly avantgarde? Just purulent? Extra eschatological? Mega pornified? Do you have appointment?
I found it more enjoyable than expected
- maybe because it reminded me of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! (Tim Heidecker was the only and obvious cast for the character he played) and The Eric Andre Show (in which Flying Lotus has made an appearance).
Still not sure whether Steven's purpose was to make a social commentary or to make people as unconfortable as possible.
Maybe there is no purpose to it at all.
You know Fly Lo funded the movie, wrote it, produced it, directed it, sound designed it, scored it, did visual effects and edited it... he should of taken much more time to work on it given he had all that control. Especially on the story as it has a lot of potential but no signs of coherence. It did not make me feel anything, no emotions whatsoever. The only thing I enjoyed were the visuals. I am very disappointed.
The moment the raw turkey giving birth to the full sized pig in pond is the moment I literally thought this is fucking weird as hell. The movie is very magical but also very confusing.. the best thing about this film was it's commitment to be incredibly random and grotesque. a very rare and unfiltered peak inside flying lotuses mind and I was both disgusted and longing for more. It wasn't that great but oh well...
Em suma é uma viagem alucinante (pagava para ver em IMAX) com sentido de humor satírico e com algumas farpas bem apontadas a uma sociedade hiper-sexualizada e muitas vezes inutilmente mediada.
Não se notam contornos wes andersoniescos em certos pontos (a estória da árvore, por exemplo?).
Curioso para ver mais.
