Holy Mountain meets Koyanisquatsi meets Salvador Dali meets Greenpeace
Pretentious, vulgar, unbelievable, mind numbing, mind blowing. One of the biggest "HUH?" movies ever made.
I want the drugs these people were on.
Its a creation myth wrapped in an eco-rant. Its watching naked chicks run around while being abused for our behavior. Its gore and beauty.Its either a complete mess or brilliant meditation.
Its a film you can't really describe except by saying its the combination listed in the title of this review. If you don't know what each of those things are then you probably will despise this film. Then again even if you do know what they are you will despise this film. Let me propose a litmus test, if you can stand to watch the opening massacre of frogs by feet, wheels and tank treads, then perhaps this movie is for you. If you can't survive the first couple of minutes then either flee the theater or take the DVD back to where you got it. It just gets weirder from there.
Personally I was alternately loving and laughing at this movie. Some of it is really good, much of it is pretentious twaddle. How this film has managed to escape South Korea is a wonder since the audience for this film has to be tiny.
This is a movie for the most adventurous or stoned movie goers only. The more you are either of those things then the more you're likely to make it through this film with out laughing or walking out.
