A movie without any dialog. True story: For the first ten or so minutes the sound was out of synch but because it all sounded like post sound and there was no dialogue to ground it, the entire audience had no clue that anything was wrong. I know I just though "wow this movie is fucking experimental".
After they got the sound issue sorted, the movie began again in earnest. I have to say... for a movie with no dialogue to play at midnight is pretty ballsy. I didn't doze off once though and I also didn't see anyone leave.
It could be described as a castration comedy, but there's also some pretty heavy drama going on. Lots of castration though. My favorite part was anything involving this researched technique about how, in lieu of a penis to rub, you could get off by rubbin a rough stone against your skin until it's completely raw. Several characters try it and that orgasm-pleasure-followed-by-incapacitating-pain was always funny to me. Later in the film this idea progressed to getting stabbed and working the knife handle kind of like a cock. Great twisted Fantastic Fest moment...
I liked it.
