Bad Trip

Bad Trip ★★★★½

One of the best comedic satires of the century, in my book. Kitao Sakurai and Eric André's Cabin Boy. An absurdly hysterical social and filmic commentary created through inconceivable but perfect methods of cinematic magic. Structure and form as spy cameras capturing reactions and moving the characters, or personas, forward. Security images as propellers which drive the roles to their ridiculous "finish." Really though, the film has no beginning or end (in the same sense of the slick transitions between the cameras, tones, etc. used to distinguish multiple aesthetic realities). It amalgamates flawlessly, ultimately existing in the faction of our subconscious aching to see an amusing interruption or disturbance from the colorless status quo.
