Score one for Hollyweird!
Hollyweird reaches a new low with the movie Kuso when, over the course of last weekend, a “large chunk” of the audience walked out of a premier screening of the movie at the Robert Redford-founded Sundance Film Festival.
Kuso is the Japanese word for shit.
Zachary Fox, who worked on the film, responded to the Sundance walkouts by playing the race card: “White people walked out of Kuso because it wasn’t 50 years a slave, bye hoe” — a reference to the movie about slavery, 12 Years a Slave.
Roisin O’Connor reports for the UK’s Independent, Jan. 26, 2017, that Kuso’s official plot synopsis describes a collection of semi-connected short films that chronicle the lives of the mutated men, women and children of Los Angeles after an earthquake.
Various scenes are said to feature a man having sex with a talking boil on a woman’s neck, genital mutilation, and a doctor, played by singer George Clinton, who keeps a medicinal cockroach in his anus.
Kuso‘s director Flying Lotus, a rapper who is fixated on death and the macabre whose real name is Steven Ellison, said he approached Clinton for the role by texting him: “Would you mind showing your butthole on camera?” However, a representative for the film said Clinton’s “real ass” does not appear in Kuso.
In a review for The Verge, Chris Plante calls Kuso “the grossest movie ever made“:
“I’ll start with the footage of an erect penis being stabbed…. Kuso is a collection of semi-connected short films chronicling the lives of the mutated women, men, and children of Los Angeles, following the earthquake to end all earthquakes. But that’s not really Kuso’s story, let alone its point … its creators are mostly interested in one thing: producing the grossest film ever…. A large chunk of the audience left my screening early, when a boil-covered woman choked a man with a strap until he covered half her face with semen…. Some gross-out films are one-note, but Kuso finds new ways to test viewers’ fortitude. Some folks stuck around after a woman chewed on concrete until her teeth disintegrated, but still peaced out when an alien creature force-yanked a foetus from another woman’s womb… then smoked the tiny corpse.”
Despite the fact that Kuso has neither artistic nor social merit, Plante reports that the movie’s trailer has already been picked up by a number of music sites and has attracted tens of thousands of views.
A reader of the Independent article perfectly identifies what’s wrong with Kuso. JohninRedding wrote that the movie:
“Proves the belief that the end product of liberalism is a society without any morals. This has been the direction man has taken every time they denounce God and decide they know best how to live life. We have an evil bent to us and no amount of human laws will deter us.”
Shun this movie like the plague, because it is the plague.
