Whilst the transgressive, hybrid and colorful fashion tableaux towards the end of this short film display imagery of cinematic potential, 'Zombies' is ultimately a video-clip project and one that self-consciously succumbs to the social media craze that feeds a self's thirst for recognition. Ethnographically it has some interest but the concomitant social commentary is essentially compressed in the shallow rap lyrics.
(3.5 stars) A pretty visually arresting music video. Some great images, dance numbers and cool montages as well. The message is quite clear and although it is somewhat overly heavy-handed at times, it is handled gracefully and is beautiful to look at. And... I do need to get me a gold fur coat. That was dope.
A 15-minute music video disguised as a short film. Its in-your-face messages do not let the film be anything other than a mere music video, albeit a long one. The 3 songs featured in the film are from Baloji's (the film's director) latest album. The film works better as a promotional product for Baloji's musical side.
