Michael Jackson meets Marilyn Monroe and her husband Charlie Chaplin and their daughter Shirley Temple. The Pope sleeps with the Queen of England.
What's it about: Michael Jackson meets Marilyn Monroe and her husband Charlie Chaplin and their daughter Shirley Temple. The Pope sleeps with the Queen of England.
Abe 'F***king' Lincoln swears more than he cares to remember, Buckwheat (remember that spaced out character who'd talk to animals and loved his pickles from The Little Rascals that kid film you can watch over and over and not get tired?) wants to be a protective stepfather to a hen's kids, rides ponies and obsesses about chicken breasts that make him 'sweat', and yeah... nuns fly. Without parachutes from planes. And land unhurt. For the most part.
Well, you haven't landed in the twilight zone, just somewhere in the Scottish Highlands, where a Michael impersonator lands up after meeting Marilyn in Paris. She proposes he meet the rest of her lookalike commune. As recluses, they retreat to their idiosyncrasies until an untoward incident forces them back to reality.
What's hot: Very Terry Gilliam-seque in imagination, Korine who crafts most David Blaine videos, leaves a lingeringu00a0 impression with very surreal images and sequences, the poetry in motion and the soundtrack itself is enough to take your breath away.
What's not: Not everybody's cup of tea, this one thrives on being politically incorrect.
What to do: It isn't difficult to be charmed by a film that makes you ponder endlessly over the question of existence so poignantly.
