Storyline

The film introduces us to a father and his son; the older man is obese, unwell, and oppressive in his dealings with the younger, who is also deaf and mute. A series of cryptic, spellbinding episodes reveals a tyrannical paternalism at work that has long since hardened into a closed circuit of mutual pain. Enter a mysterious and beautiful woman of unspecified identity, who becomes an agent of change, embodying both an evolved consciousness and the power of the female as a rebuke to bankrupt patriarchy.

Self-indulgent garbage
31 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only reason I didn't give Fat Shaker a worse rating is that the actors were quite charismatic and good, not so much the actresses oddly. Otherwise, this was a few interesting images and a few points of sensation surrounded by a movie with no plot, no sustained dramatic tension of any sort and no real life to it.

So we watch a somewhat abusive disgusting man go through a drunken stupor for most of the film. He encounters some trouble, carts his deaf-mute son around and kidnaps some woman, sort of. Never mind that the film maker also catches a license plate in a shot that destroys the importance of the setting.

Too much shaky camera action, too many quirky "weird" elements that likely had some meaning to the filmmaker. It's sad to say that the only real impact the film had was in the final three minutes and I don't think I needed the whole previous set of sequences to get there. There is plenty of artistic film out there to experience without wasting your valuable 90 minutes or so on this. You've been warned.
