Steve Oram's deeply British feature debut is the kind of mesmerizing cult oddity whose fan base will be limited but passionate.
AAAAAAAAH! is ultimately a poignant examination of the contemporary urban rituals that surround class, gender, identity and violence.
With his debut experiment, Oram vindicates the importance of slapstick comedy and fart jokes (aren't they timeless after all?)
It won't be for everyone, but its oddly complete universe extends to imagining what primate sitcoms and radio might be like, while a rich strain of bathos yields, among other treats, the cinema's most poignant use of battenberg cake.
this primal scream of a movie, equally experimental and outrageous, will leave you open-mouthed and no less speechless than its pithecoid personnel (who also like to watch dumb shit on their screens).
Where to start?
Aaaaaaaah! is [Steve Oram's] debut feature film as writer and director, a transgressive situationist comedy which is also one of the great British films of the new millennium. Explaining why is not going to be easy.
Oram's first-feature proves consistently intriguing and reliably amusing. The performers are beyond game, with the cream-of-the-British-comedy-crop cast investing proceedings with energy, conviction and variety.
It's of great commendation to Oram that he's created something so unorthodox and avant-garde amidst a cinematic landscape palpably devoid of originality.
A mesmerising parallel world in which all intellectual pretence and identity politics has been stripped out. In this way the movie reflects our ridiculous society back to us, sans the bulls**t.
Steve Oram's directorial debut, Aaaaaaaah! (2015), comes on like a collaboration between Dogme '95 and Chris Morris. It's hard to think of another film closely like it in British cinema. It really is that out-there and singular.
With irreverent, unsettling social satire & much monkeying about, [it] first dismembers & then reassembles the primeval drives of patriarchy in its own singular way, & will no doubt elicit from viewers plenty of ooooohs, hahahas & even the odd huh?.
