Time for a SPANKING!
15 September 2015 | by (Chicago, Il) – See all my reviews

This is a fascinating short bitty made my Guy Maddin about.. well.. somewhat of the process of sound in film(s). It is most definitely a SURREAL experience of seeing someone running, and then our perception switches to the behind the scenes footage of the sound department literally creating the noises for the actions, scene fro before; not sure if they actually are the recordings, but it is definitely fun to watch!

Very fast-pace and highly humored darkly from typewriter-spankings (mhmm) to kissing a horses behind. This film tells a story in a very different way than most. It catches you off guard a lot, and might make you think that you are lost in a trance, but I think that is normal.

****I give this short a 8 out of 10 stars. Please, take the time to appreciate this type of art, because not many people have come across it yet. It is only a matter of time until it becomes the norm..
