Critic Reviews for I.K.U.
It's as if the producers were ashamed of what they were up to, and thought they could disguise it by blanketing the thing with the trappings of science fiction.
It's more of a visual 'conversation piece' than a cohesive story, but it's most assuredly for adults only!
If I.K.U. isn't the ultimate "adult" party film, I don't know what is.
Audience Reviews for I.K.U.
Somewhere between pornography, science fiction, and avant-garde cinema, there is I.K.U., Taiwanese multimedia artist Shu Lea Cheang's cyberpunk exploration of desire and identity that unfortunately lacks the cohesion and sense that would make it truly provocative.
I'm not sure how I found out about this, but this was totally not a sci-fi flick. This was kind of like a porn. It was much weirder, though. I'm not sure what the story was, they kept flashing pieces of the plot up, but I didn't really get any of that from the scenes... I think it might have been in English too, but without subtitles you have no clue what they're saying. Not that they are saying anything worth hearing. The flashing around to different scenes and angles was interesting, but it just made this a weird experimental-ish movie. I'm sure the director's intention was how much crazy fetish weirdness can we put in this. It's kind of like a video game at times. The bad part is that if they would have just added some basic plot items down in something other than word flashes, this might have been an interesting movie. I'm kind of clueless what this was about after watching it.
