Orange...and telling dying people to just stop it
31 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Orange. Neon Orange.

This is a movie about people becoming orange. The cover of the DVD featuring an overhead view of the dead people with their heads on the dinner plates on the table and the gun has absolutely nothing to do with this movie as has already been stated in other reviews. It is not a thriller. It is like a very slow-moving early afternoon soap opera where people slowly become orange as they talk and sometimes shout at each other and eat Asian fast food and steal each other's medication from a drawer with at least fifty orange prescription bottles. (Perhaps this is what is turning them orange.) A young man at the bottom of a flight of stairs talks to a girl for a long time...

He slowly becomes orange. His ears become bright orange. Orange spots mysteriously appear randomly on his face as if an invisible painter is painting his face neon orange. The girl he is talking to slowly becomes orange. She has orange highlights in her hair. Random orange spots appear on her upper arms.

People with orange hands traverse the landscape.

It's about big orange walls and a big orange poster, where more orange people sit and talk. The big orange poster features a big orange title. The bathroom has orange features. There are closeups of orange cigarette lighters and lots of orange things everywhere. Somewhere along the line there is an orange needle full of either heroin, sugar water, or poison. One has to watch closely at this point, because I think a man dies, though he is moving on the bed when they say he is deceased so I cannot be sure.

Earlier, as the man is bleeding to death, the woman is yelling at him to stop this. So if you see someone drowning in their own blood, please inform them to just stop it. If they keep bleeding, just keep yelling until they hear you.

It is a day of orange.
