Strickland is a madman's Wes Anderson. After his Fabric touched on our obsession with fashion and being perceived, Flux Gourmet tackles our relationship with high-brow art; its performance, its hubris, its fakery, its attractive power (again with being perceived) and, most of all, the horror of its drama. The joke is a bit overlong, and sometimes a little too overlong, but as a demented flipside to pastel fables of innocence, Flux shows us in all our organic, greasy, mean-spirited and, ultimately, futile ways.

I have alot to say about flux gourmet, it was a whole lot of weird humor and gross references which I could tolerate because I'm not grossed out easy. However this movies point was a little lost on me some of the characters are interesting but you need an open mind to get through this because it was way too long in my opinion especially for something which is honestly nonsense. My thoughts but I can appreciate the artistic experience which parts of it had .

Tried to infuse artistic stuff which I appreciate.

Too long for how out of the world dumb and pointless it was, I love strange stuff but I think this is for I don't even know who. Trying to categorize this is hard I just say it's wtf . A bizarre one that I didn't fully grasp the point of unfortunately.

Absolutely would not classify this as horror myself, but I don't regret watching it at all. Loved it, the visuals, the audio accompaniment, set, performances and atmosphere were all fantastic. It's like if Wes Anderson made a film on a bad trip.
