Funky Forest: The First Contact

Posted by martinteller on February 21, 2009

Goddamn it.  At first I thought this was going to be a movie I’d LOVE.  In the spirit of Monty Python, Survive Style 5+ and the better aspects of Phantom of Liberty, it’s a series of loosely connected absurdist skits.  Very unpredictable, very stylish, very fresh and for the most part very funny.  But I got turned off when things got all Cronenbergian with the grotesqueries and such.  That’s just not my bag.  And parts of it were either too self-consciously random or too repetitive.  But I really did like most of it, and if I could trim out about 20-30 minutes it might be one of my favorites.  Rating: 8
