Someone get a man in as there’s something wrong with time and space. Somehow this thing– this movie– came over from some awful bizarro world alternate universe where Gilbert Godfried is President and KFC sells Wolly Mammoth thigh. That can be the only logical explanation.
Not really, but close enough. It’s 7th grade meets The Dunwich Horror.
Still, not as amusing as this dark humor industrial film on safety hailing from Germany. At least I think its humor. Slow in the beginning but moments like 4:46 and 6:05 ooze blood colored Teutonic gory goodness.
Somehow I was able to ignore the fact the one guy could cling to the landing gear while perplexed how any person could swim from south Manhattan (after jumping from a plane) to either LaGuardia or JFK airport. From Shakedown staring Robocop and Buckaru Banzai’s Peter Weller.
In 1977 the Anglica Network canceled a weekly science program utilitarianly called Science Report. The series presented topical science coverage in a familiar format to those who have seen educational programs of the 1970’s (or parody Look Around You). Knowing the last episode would debut April 1, the production crew went out with a bang rather than a whimper.
Using the same format and host, the program presented a fantastic tale of conspiracies, shadow governments, kidnapped scientists, secret space colonies, and eminent ecological apocalypse. If that sounds familiar, its because Roland Emmerich and others have ripped this off numerous times however Science Report does this masterfully. It even has a soundtrack by Brian Eno!

Jay J. Armes is a private eye who lost both hands. That didn’t stop him from being a bad ass. Or one of the most sought after private eyes with clients from John Lennon to Elizabeth Taylor.
Kate Bush is an army of one.
Wow. Someone finally made something beautiful and true with blobby lumps of clay.
BLUE: An Erotic Life is a stop motion animation that narrates the life story of a blob of clay dealing with sexual addiction. The piece plays on the contrast between graphic adult content and grotesque stop motion. The combination of the two makes for an absurd, dark humored short film.
BLUE: An Erotic Life is my BFA Student Thesis from Parsons School of Design.
