Directed by Steve
Broadcasting through a makeshift network of discarded televisions, KUSO is a shifting series of vignettes tangled in the aftermath of Los Angeles's worst earthquake nightmare. Travel between screens and aftershocks into the twisted lives of the survived. Blending nightmarish visions, animation and a shocking image of a distorted America, this is the daring debut and Sundance sensation from director Steve, aka renowned musician Flying Lotus. Delirious, provocative and darkly hilarious, KUSO is as verbose with macabre, music, melancholy and unimaginable imagery. You won't believe your eyes, or your mind. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE.
Renowned musician Flying Lotus' wild debut feature broadcasts the twisted lives of earthquake survivors in a surreal Los Angeles.
Cast: Hannibal Buress, George Clinton, David Firth, Tim Heidecker, Anders Holm
This seems like that Pyrrhic attempt at creating something the critics will "love" and the audiences won't. I'm sure it's awesome to hear someone say you are brilliant, but getting paid for that same effort isn't outside the realm of creating art either. There's gotta be a happy medium in there somewhere--this is neither happy nor medium. Parts are good, parts are awful, in totality it's background noise at its best, white noise at its worst.
Its interesting. heard reviews it was bad. i thought it was different. wasnt bad at all.
A bit strange. I liked it.
Shutter, bring me more!
Truly twisted genius. This may be a FlyLo project, but David Firth's fingers are all over this thing and thankfully it shows. Told in a series of loosely-related vignettes (all taking place in the same universe), KUSO is thrillingly disgusting and transgressive, fully committing to its weird ideas and never shying away from showing us just how gross this imagery can get. KUSO definitely has metaphorical moments (although it's up to you how to interpret them), but even as a purely visceral exercise, it had me squirming in my seat, which as some grizzled horror fans will agree, can be hard to do this days. I say KUDOS to KUSO
