Hello my little chimpanzees who’ve just learned sign language. I’m all of a flap today because I’m in the middle of a mad dash to get everything done before a writer and artist’s retreat at my friend’s in September and October, so I hope you don’t mind me leaving you with this interview link and some clips from music man Flying Lotus‘ recent film Kuso.
I saw it recently (it’s streaming on Shudder) and really loved it, but also really hated bits of it, and if a film can do that it’s worth recommending, no?
Parts are like a beautiful psychedelic dream while others are a juvenile, scatalogical nightmare, which is a bit like life really. Filmed under his record label (and production company too, I suppose) Brainfeeder, it was also co-created by animator David Firth and writer/artist/music man/etc Zack Fox. If you can stomach the really gross bits the originality is more than enough to tickle your brain cells.
Here’s an interview with the three filmmakers. Warning: Clips may be sweary
