Soooo Cracked Out

"...and soooo good for being just that. i must admit my favorite genre of film is one that may not even exist - cracked out. i love it, the stranger, more grotesque and incoherent a film is, the more i seem to love it.
As far as a plot or storyline of this movie is concerned there really isn't much to tell, and reading the blurb on the back of dvd case won't do too much to help the viewer dicipher what exactly it is that they're watching or give many clues as to what exactly is going on. Each sceen seems to exist simply to open the door for more violence, more extremism, and more confusion. Perhaps the last ten minutes or so show a real attempt to convey an idea or reason for all the scenes that preceeded it but honestly i don't love the movie for the message or it's attempt to tie everything together, i love it for it's bizaare randomness and incoherent progression of cracked out images.
Seeing as to how difficult it is to explain this movie i thought i would compare it to some other cracked out films i enjoy. video quality is somewhere between Gozu and Meatbsll Machine- like Kichiku, but not as well shot. Believe me though, this only adds to the film. The story is more random than Gozu or Crazylips and is in fact, so random that it makes Gummo come across as a very linear story. Think Izo, but without the repeditive theme. It's definetly a low budget flick but like i said earlier, this only adds to the overall feeling of the film and doesn't detract from the story like Meatball Machine does (hated it) - if it had better more realistic effects i don't know that the film would have been any better and quite honestly, it probably would have failed where this one succeeds.
Bottom line, i can't rememeber the last time i said WTF so many times in such a short time span. Definetly not for some, but gold for "crack heads" like myself. Highly recommended"
