Sublime, ridiculous, funny, disturbing, lush, innovative and moving
24 October 2004 | by (New Zealand / England) – See all my reviews

I have just shown a bunch of students Woodenhead and I gotta say it's the most original film I've seen for a very long time! The whole soundtrack was recorded first, and the visuals shot to match ( and not match) after. The work of a mad man! Sublime, ridiculous, funny, disturbing, lush, innovative and moving. It's great. Absolutely beautiful shots - especially towards the end. Great music. And the characters - for being fairy-tale characters, it sure shows Habicht cares for them. Yeah, I'm really very blown away. I read that the film was inspired by a dream, where two rastafarian angels (Milli Vannilli) told the film maker he was to pre-record the entire soundtrack of his next film!
