Storyline

A story of a group of humanoid rabbits and their depressive, daily life. The plot includes Jane ironing, Suzie sitting on a couch, Jack walking in and out of the apartment, and the occasional solo singing number by Suzie or Jane. At one point the rabbits also make contact with their "leader". A really Lynch-esque series of episodes. Written by The Man

For those with a fear of Insanity
29 November 2005 | by newbiebuilderSee all my reviews

As far as movies and films go there is entertainment and there is attempts at artistic, usually meaning the surreal and flamboyant, in which it seems Lynch likes to dabble. That isn't exactly the type of film I like to watch but I get into what I do see.

Overall each uses a standard set of techniques and tones to set the viewer up emotionally and pull the average viewer through the story. That is what is so upsetting in 'Rabbits' and gives a very cool experience to anyone who enjoys "immersing" themselves in a movie but is not offended that in 'Rabbits' Lynch makes that near impossible.

I admire that Lynch can cause as much tension, nervousness, and horror, by abusing conventional timing, mixing dialog order, and throwing off what the average film watcher has been conditioned to expect, than a baser film can do with buckets of gore and unrealistic violence.

Some people may see things like the inappropriately timed laugh tracks as stupid, I believe it really depends on what your mind has been conditioned to expect. When I hear applause and laughter I expect comedy and action but instead Lynch delivers rain, grinding sounds, pockets of inactivity, which become evermore disturbing. My mind ran as I tried to order the slow coming dialog into ideas and arrange the story and the action on the same time-line. The constant camera angle becomes unsettling once you actually see a change, and nothing has made me jump as much as the second match, because I had become more scared of what I expected in a series where it was impossible to expect anything.

My recommendation is to turn the lights down and watch the series all alone in your living room, whether you enjoy it or not, think its stupid or brilliant, a sitcom or horror, prepare yourself for a set of the hibi-jeebies that Freddie Krugger himself couldn't give you.
