Audience Reviews for Funky Forest: The First Contact

  • May 12, 2010
    Ignore the synopsis on Flixster, this is a series of silly, strange or outright bizarre sketches by three Japanese directors, loosely linked by sharing the same actors/characters. It started off very badly indeed, then it grew on me and suddenly I found myself with a big grin on my face. A two minute intermission with countdown and music, more grins then bemusement, a WTF or two and then it finished. If you like those late-night alternative comedy TV sketches, Japnese humour or puzzling your friends , then definitely try this. If you lke conventional plots and punchlines, then don't. <img src="http://www.indie.student.virginia.edu/img/stills/s09/funkyforest.jpg"> .

    Essentially, a set of absurdist short films from three different directors, sharing some of the same characters, arranged into a sort of surrealist SHORT CUTS. The experiment produces exactly what you would expect: a very mixed bag, with many segments that drag on and on and go nowhere, and a sprinkling of truly delightful moments (most notably the musical numbers and the animation).

    Being "random" doesn't equal being funny, creative or interesting. Let this movie be a lesson for anyone thinking "random" means good.

    Saw this one at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival and it ranks up there along with Schizopolis and a midnight showing of Army of Darkness as my favourite theater experience. Surreal, hilarious, stylish and lots of fun, this is a perfect cult film with lots of opportunity for audience interaction. As always Tadanobu Asano and Susumu Terajima (who is quickly becoming one of my favourite actors) were excellent.
