Just Odd Enough to be Cool
22 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is something you have to see to believe. With solo music performances strung together with spoken word non-sequiter poetry, this short film (directed by Jesse Dylan) certainly qualifies as odd yet cool. When Burnett's wry, cynical drawl seethes the vocals of "Earlier Baghdad (The Bounce)", "Shaken Rattled and Rolled" and especially "An Acquired Past", I was moved in such a way as to see the pathos and humor of those songs.

The setting of the video--The Magic Castle nightclub--has a bordello feel to it, mimicking the underlying theme of unrepentant human ills to such a degree as to make it Vidiosyncracy a work of satire rather than a concert film. The Tiki Man at the end is too funny, but I love weirdness and can find the humor in such kiztch. This may not be for everybody, but repeated viewings offer delights once you get past the surface tension.
