TSOU is less of a movie and more of an assault on the eyes
11 August 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The Smell of Us, although sounding like a good film in its festival write up is in fact the worse and hardest things I've ever had to watch.

The film is void of narrative or character development and in its place is scene after scene of vulgarity passed of as artistic.

The Smell Of Us, made be questions the entire notion of film as a medium.

Do yourself a favor and on the night you were planning on seeing this film, do something more enjoyable and less harmful to your psych instead, like punching yourself in the face. or sitting alone in a dark room.

not only a bad film, but a bad moment in human history.
