Watch the trailer for Flying Lotus' debut feature film, sparking mass walkouts at Sundance
The grossest movie ever made, Kuso, sounds awesome.
For many, Flying Lotus is heralded as a genius when it comes to the music world. Real name Steven Ellison, FlyLo has had a prolific and exceptional output over the past decade, alongside putting on some incredible live performances, both visually and aurally. This year at Sundance he's flexed that love of the visual even more with his first ever feature film, Kuso, showing to audiences.
And there are fair portions of those audiences who are having a little trouble digesting what he's putting down, with the SMH reporting mass walkouts at the Kuso screening, some people not lasting 10 minutes. Why? Well THIS review on The Verge goes along way to explaining things, with reviewer Chris Plante proclaiming it "the grossest movie ever". The film is actually a series of loosely-connected short films, documenting a host of mutated main characters in an earthquake-ruined Los Angeles.
From erect penises being stabbed, to sex with talking boils, it sounds wildly disgusting and fucked up, and naturally, we can't wait til it gets released wider. Which it probably won't, on account of it being NC-17 (X-rated in Aus'), so we'll just have to wait for it to pop up somewhere online. Earlier today Ellison actually fully acknowledged this via his Facebook, so here's hoping he puts it out there himself ASAP:
And until then, feed that anticipation with the film's trailer, below:
