We Are The Art Hipsters
14 January 2017 | by bloodbath666See all my reviews

I read a lot about this film before seeing it, and not many people had anything nice to say about it. It's being regarded as a crime against humanity! With that, I don't agree. I found the beginning to have been very well acted and the theme was setup well.

Then, it just goes off the rails in some surrealist artsy-fartsy direction that loses grip on what it was about in the first place (freedom = exploring the dark corners of your mind and embracing your taboo). It's not nearly as controversial as Serbian Film or Nekromantik, so if that's the hangup, people need to get over themselves. You spend 59 minutes of the 79 minute film not really knowing what is going on. All you can do is take in the pretty camera-work, which I thought was excellent. The musical selection was also really good. Basically, I wanted to hate this, but I'm able to easily find some noteworthy aspects to prevent me from throwing it away altogether.

This film is a bold slap in the face to the big studios who put out the same exercises in banality week after week. When you see the same romantic comedy and superhero movie over and over again, filmmakers tend to try to shock to get attention. Clearly We Are The Flesh accomplished that in spades with a mediocre film.
