Kuso

After an earthquake devastates a large part of Los Angeles, only a handful survive. For example: a family in their cabin in the woods, strange creatures in alien pods, wobbles who share their house with a pregnant woman. First feature film by musician Flying Lotus defies categorisation and will have its cult following as well as its devoted haters. 

If Shinya Tsukamoto and John Waters had a child with Harmony Korine in Twin Peaks's Black Lodge, while listening to Aphex Twin's Windowlicker, and shown this child early Cronenberg's films instead of cartoons, Kuso could be this child's nightmare. Easily the most disgusting film at Imagine, this is an odd gem, a unique vision that will get its cult following as well as its devoted haters. Visually, the film is very consistent while the episodes and characters only have a very loose connection. The film’s structure is that of a mixtape of dreams and nightmares, accompanied by the director’s soundtrack.
