After just a couple minutes, “Spontaneous” fades out and gives way to the opening thump of “Takashi.” The song — a dense, dizzying jam centered around a skittering clavichord — is named for Takashi Kudo, an artist in the teamLab collective, whose worked

Kirsten Johnson brings us her memoirs by way of a videographic scrapbook. Bits and pieces of the numerous documentaries she’s shot in her years as a Dp have been woven together into a travelogue / ethnographic study / commentary on the nature of cinematic framing. What was an establishing shot in one doc becomes, here, a study of the vagaries of a camera operator’s job. Documentary

There are horror films in which the persistence of violence and torture serves as a vehicle for a broader social commentary, like Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Saló, which, when I first saw it, was perhaps the most unruly thing I’d ever witnessed.

Already acclaimed for his expansive psychedelic albums as musician Flying Lotus, Ellison steps behind the camera to direct this mind-altering freakshow of a first feature, co-written with David Firth and Zach Fox.
Honestly, we have no fucking clue what’s happening here; the trailer blends live-action, animation, and body horror into some sort of David Cronenberg-meets-Who Framed Roger Rabbit hybrid. Is George Clinton’s crazy-sounding doctor a good guy? Does that woman’s vagina have teeth? Can this movie congeal into something more than 90 minutes of out-there imagery and screaming? Hopefully, we’ll have a better idea when
Featuring Hannibal Buress, Anders Holm, Tim Heidecker, and funk legend George Clinton, the plot, such as it is, looks at the lives at a bunch of twisted citizens in Los Angeles, but, really, “Kuso” is something you experience.

First up, Lemon comes from Janicza Bravo and Brett Gelman, following the latter as his life unravels in the strangest of ways. Also starring Judy Greer, Michael Cera, Fred Melamed, Rhea Perlman, Gillian Jacobs, Jon Daly, Martin Starr, Megan Mullally, Jeff Garlin, and Nia Long, it was actually one of the few films at the festival I didn’t review because I was left dumbfounded at what I just saw, for better or worse.
