Should've had one more fake-out opening tbh
V important and inspiring. Amazing to see the Devo and Residents films in such good quality. 70s punk fly on the wall documentary stuff makes me want to start a band once we're all allowed to leave the house again.
Side note: two of the films are made by Richard Gaikowski, who (and this is not mentioned in the online program for the film) was one of the prime suspects in the Zodiac murders. There is far less information online about him being a filmmaker than there is about him being a Zodiac killer. This is cool.
If you say people give this negative reviews because of their political viewpoints you're wrong, because it's also just bad. If you think clever satire is someone answering "what is two plus two" with "multiculturalism", I have to ask you, are you a literal child? Have you ever been outside in your life? Do you actually know anything about these people you mock other than "they're not me, so fuck 'em"? And yes, these questions do apply to the film.…
Three guys get drunk in a house and occasionally find spiders. One of them spontaneously combusts offscreen, but he's fine about forty minutes later.
I don't know how you could watch this and think "yeah this is releasable". But they did. I'd say don't watch it sober, but the movie already accurately simulates the experience of being belligerently intoxicated. So watching it drunk is actually like getting even more drunk for free, which is a good deal.
Also one of cinema's most accurate titles.
