Another James Fotopoulos gem
27 February 2009 | by (IN) – See all my reviews

Wow, James Fotopoulos is a rare voice in the world of experimental film, doing something truly different, that most people probably won't care about (check the other ridiculous reviews if you want evidence of that). Yes, this is essentially two people in a room, having sex, and saying a few things, with some cutaway shots of ... other things ... while a cyst grows on a girl's back.

It is purposely abrasive, minimal, disorienting, and hard to take. It is sloooooooow, the music is headache-inducing. It's probably a painful experience to the uninitiated. But I thought it was brilliant. Really some next-level stuff, especially in the field of "no-budget cinema" (though, obviously, this HAD a budget, since it was shot on FILM, and film costs money, you know!).

I can't reveal what I took out of this film, because I took a LOT.. it was a completely beautiful experience. Existentialism is talked about a lot in films but this film truly explores themes I've never seen explored in other films. I loved the glacial pace, the beautiful black and white 16mm cinematography, etc. If you're into films that are different or want to see a director who has really honed in on the vibe Lynch had on Eraserhead, check out this film or any of this other guy's features. I have an odd feeling, since he hasn't worked since 2002 that I know of, that he is no longer making films, despite making a bunch of full lengths and 100 shorts. Has hardly gotten any recognition whatsoever, despite unique, winning winning "film of the year" at a famous NY underground film festival, and clearly being the work of an absolute genius (a misused word if there ever was one). Regardless, this film is a masterpiece and my life feels enhanced for watching it. Forget mumblecore -- this is cutting edge, the future of independent cinema, and James is going to take over the world. My favorite filmmaker besides Godard, Fassbinder, and Kitano.
