Exactly what you want from a surrealist short film
21 May 2018 | by nathanielqwilsonSee all my reviews

This really cool short film is everything you want from surrealism.

It's bizarre, freaky, but it's not arbitrary. It establishes a simple concept and follows it through with a fetishistic weirdness in every moment.

It's not meant to convey some cryptic message, it just gets it's hands dirty as it delves into the dream like and reshuffles the familiar human body.
