Film POP and Shudder present:
Director: Flying Lotus
One of the most controversial films of this year’s Sundance, Flying Lotus’s directorial debut Kuso (a.k.a. "Shit") doesn’t take its title lightly at all. Unfolding as an anthology of surrealist shorts, set against a crumbling, post-apocalyptic Los Angeles, Kuso is also a scatological labyrinth, at once psychedelic and provocative, obscene, transgressive and utterly disgusting. Drawing from Shintaro Kago (who provided the visuals for FlyLo’s 5th studio album in 2014), as much as from David Cronenberg or Frank Henenlotter, Ellison keeps up the gory, goopy sensibility of You’re Dead, combined with something of the anti-comedy of Adult Swim. Starring George Clinton, Hannibal Buress, Tim Heidecker, as well as Busdriver David Firth, and the inimitable Cool 3D World, Kuso is worth repeating a cliché for: not for the faint of heart.
