This two minute film was directed by the one and only David Lynch and was originally shown at the Cannes Film Festival. A group of people are sitting in a theater watching a movie when one realizes that the woman on the screen is her. She talks about how what she's watching is a nightmare she's been having and it appears to be coming real. ABSURDA isn't a masterpiece or anything close to that but it's a fairly interesting film that might actually work well as a feature. I thought this short at least managed to have that certain atmosphere that only Lynch can create and I think the nightmare vision is nicely put onto the screen. The movie also manages to tell its story is a rather neat way and I liked how we never actually see the people in the theater and can just go by what they're saying. Lynch fans should enjoy this one.
