Storyline

A hopeful romantic tries to hold onto a failing relationship with her playful but detached boyfriend. A sexually-repressed hitchhiker on a quest for enlightenment finds love in a broken dreamer. The surreal, mind-altering setting of a week-long desert art event becomes the catalyst for the simultaneous creation of one romance and destruction of another reminding us there is beauty in both. Shot on-location in a stunning desert landscape, the film is an explosion of vibrant imagery and ideas, merging documentary with narrative and the authentic with the absurd to create an entirely unique cinematic experience that asks what is love? What is reality? And where the hell is the porta potty?

Philosophical and meditative
13 September 2019 | by thein-614-76443See all my reviews

As his and susan buice's debut "Four Eyed Monsters" in 2005 - still one of my favorites - arin crumleys second feature MOOP centers around relationships. An intense journey taking place in the desert, where earth and stars meet each other a lot in this movie. The emotional editing got me, and the special, mostly handheld camera is very close and sometimes in weird positions; but making sense all the time. Especially given the circumstances that the movie was shot over several years at the burning man festival (and some other places). The score and and the cast are amazing and what most excites me most is this meditative style: you get lost and find yourself again, a little different to what you were before, just like the cast in the film does. Saw it on the Intern. Filmfest Oldenburg, Indie-Highlight for me, highly recommended.
