A strange mix of humorous surrealism and sordidness
"Adrenaline" proposes a string of short surrealist films presenting at various levels an interesting mix of mild gore, cynical humor and absurd. A deeper treatment of the different themes approached (predestination, suffering for art, tv interactivity, obsession, and so on) would have been appreciated, but this can be a difficult task in regard of the formula adopted here (and possibly because of budgetary constraints) by the various directors. The light entertainment this film provided me gets a 6 on 10 on my MPS (mindf*cks per second) scale.
