|05.16.07||Weird Wednesday|| That's maybe the weirdest movie I've ever seen.|
ok, ok. maybe I need to add a little bit more. I'm sure when I look back at this years from now I'll appreciate a little more information than it was weird. Plus I don't want to alienate the only two readers I have :)
So anyway, this is a Japanese pink film about a man and woman sharing a trip to the dentist. However it may have originally been like, the version I saw had the woman getting all turned on by the dentist working in her mouth and the film constantly cuts to naked American porn actors wearing masks vaguely re-enacting each scene in a somewhat more explicit manner. It started off hilarious but grew stale pretty quickly. And then it got even less funny because the Japanese man goes into his own Japanese daydream (that's still cut with inserts of the American nakedness daydream) where he has to watch the woman get dominated by the dentist... and that's most of the movie. Then at the end we jump back to reveal that they're still in the dentist office but maybe not!?
Massacre of pleasure had a plot that quickly dissolved, but you could still tell they at least started with a semblance of storytelling. Here, it's all very abstract right from the get-go. The soundtrack especially, filled with harsh electronic bleeps and bloops punctuated with drill sounds and very very sparse dialogue (subtitled). It was... well, it was weird.
But that's a good thing. The series isn't called Camp Wednesdays or Retro Wednesdays... it's good for there to be a real head-scratcher thrown in once in a while to keep it a challenge. And I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised that only a handful of people left early. I can't imagine as many people showing up anywhere else.
