Storyline

A story of a group of humanoid rabbits and their depressive, daily life. The plot includes Jane ironing, Suzie sitting on a couch, Jack walking in and out of the apartment, and the occasional solo singing number by Suzie or Jane. At one point the rabbits also make contact with their "leader". A really Lynch-esque series of episodes. Written by The Man

Rabbits is a hard-to-forget experience.
28 July 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I must confess I haven't seen all of the episodes, so I don't know how everything is explained at the end(IF it is explained, which I really doubt). But, since most of the episodes are about 98% the same anyway, I don't feel like I've missed something.

David Lynch, director of Dune, Eraserhead, the short film Darkened Room, The Elephant Man, and many other weird 50-50 understandable pictures, really blew my mind with this highly stylish, moody, perhaps artistic, but very, very weird series of short films. "Rabbits", is simply a film about, that's right, rabbits. But you haven't seen a more depressive rabbit flick since Watewrship Down, I promise you!

Plot is nonexistent, the entire show is held together by an eerie atmosphere, created to perfection by Lynch's use of sounds: heavy rain ever falling outside the rabbits' gloomy apartment, a laugh track being played when nothing in particular is funny, an applause track played whenever one of the rabbits enter the room.

The dialog helps the mysterious "what-the-hell-is-going-on-here" feeling of the show. Lines are uttered by the rabbits which do not make the slightest bit of sense the first, second, or hundredth time you watch the episode, and probably never will (unless Lynch makes some sort of prequel one day, which wouldn't be his way).

first lines: Suzie: I am going to find out one day. When will you tell it?

Jack(after long pause): Were there any calls?

Suzie: What time is it?

(laugh track plays for unknown reason)

Jack: I have a secret.

Suzie: There have been no calls today. (laugh track plays again)

You get the general idea. Incomprehensible as the show is, the mood, settings, and general atmosphere (plus the rabbit suits) somehow make it eerie, almost chilling at some points. I wouldn't say it's a horror show, because there is literally nothing scary happening (heck, NOTHING's happening), neither would I call it a comedy, even though the entire concept and dialog between the rabs is completely absurd. A dark drama? perhaps, but without a plot.

It's best to see "Rabbits" as what it is: "Rabbits". A truly unique, very moody series of episodes, that seem to have no purpose other than to spook the viewer and make him pull out his hair trying to make sense of it all. The point of "Rabbits" is pretty hard to grasp(the IMDb boards have plenty of theories) but it is somehow very enjoyable to watch. A slow, strange, weird, seemingly pointless, but great show.

Starring Scott Coffey(Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Mullholland Dr., Wayne's World 2) and Naomi Watts(21 Grams, The Ring). 10/10
