Critic Reviews for Kuso

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (14)

  • Even those with a strong tolerance for monster-movie gore are far from guaranteed to accept its warm, clumpy bath of repugnant ickiness.

    July 25, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Kuso may often feel unproductively loud, and monotonous, but it is a head-scratcher worth contending with.

    July 21, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Maybe Kuso becomes coherent on a second or third viewing, but few would (or should) attempt such torture.

    July 20, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Every densely layered image of oozing pus and gassy orifices is as imaginatively rendered as it is disgusting.

    July 20, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Kuso could scarcely be called a film proper; it's more like a feature-length sequence of moving pictures and disparate narratives that seem perpetually engaged in a game of one-upmanship, the point being for each image to be grosser ...

    July 18, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • So thoroughly conceived that it demands appreciation if not quite love, Kuso offers gross-out Afro-future horror for the dank-memes generation.

Audience Reviews for Kuso

  • Jul 25, 2017
    Monty Python, Eraserhead, Tetsuo: The Iron Man, Funky Forest: The First Contact meet Tim Heidecker, George Clinton, and Aphex Twin in Flying Lotus' first feature film Kuso. In a year that has already had its fair share of weird (i.e. The Bad Batch, the new season of Twin Peaks, Raw, and Song to Song), Flying Lotus a.k.a. Steve has dropped a doo-doo bomb of political satire on our desperately drug-fueled, over-sexed culture. After already establishing himself in the hip-hop, IDM, and (insert Pitchfork genre here) music scenes, Flying Lotus has finally given us a visual amalgamation of all of his favorite films, made it disgusting, and in so doing, created an extreme art-house flick that you have to love simply for all of the influences it wears on its sleeve. Unlike many avant garde offerings, there isn't really any sort of beauty to be found in Kuso. Instead we are presented with several interwoven vignettes concerning race, gender, sexual orientation, drugs, and media, all of which range from off-putting to revolting. It seems to take place in a post-pandemic, radioactive dystopia where every facet of day to day life has devolved into a ubiquitous, nihilistic poop joke. If you consider yourself a "normal" person, just don't even bother watching this film. It is not made for you, and you will be annoyed or unnecessarily disturbed by it. For fans of David Lynch, Troma movies, and Xavier: Renegade Angel, here is one I can't recommend enough.
