humorous homoeroticism
14 November 2017 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

Madman Guy Maddin made this bizzaro four minute short...and it, frankly, defies description. It's practically a must see if you're into Guy Maddin's work as he certainly utilizes his style in a unique and totally "Maddin-esque" way, and it makes for some fascinating watching. Any real analysis or discussion of the film is almost pointless; it't almost TOO weird for that...it's...it's...it's really hard to describe with words unless one were a poet, but even if one were a poet their descriptions of what insanity bursts in every corner in every frame of this film would likely be extremely difficult reading, and something the average reader would have a difficult time processing. All I can say is that this is, no doubt, an experimental and wild ride that is saved by Maddin's signature stylistic liberties and sense of absurdist humor.
