Extremely odd short film
15 September 2013 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Tim Burton meets Hawaii. Which means we get bikini bodies, surfing action and lots of music and dancing. Now, this one was truly weird, even for his standards. He shot this short-film back in the early 80s when he was in his mid-20s and you could clearly see, he's still seeking his style. He improved rapidly in the coming years though. Two years later, he shot the very famous Frankenweenie, which got turned into a full feature not too long ago and 8 years later, he did his IMHO best work so far with Edward Scissorhands. Between this and Luau, there's really worlds.

Luau basically deals with a couple girls and boys in Hawaii experiencing love, parties, but also the occasional supernatural creature and some very natural, ruthless financial sharks. Burton shot this one together with Jerry Rees, one of the driving forces behind the "Brave Little Toaster" movie. I really only would recommend it to Burton completionists. The video quality is extremely low, the acting is downright bad occasionally, including the strangest music performances, and the script and direction just can't compensate for its flaws.
