The film "Kuso," which was recently screened at the Sundance Film Festival, had people walking out in droves consistently throughout the showing. Why?
Because it's the grossest film ever. Duh.
Apparently, Kuso focuses on the survivors of an earthquake in Los Angeles and has been labeled by reviewers as a "93-minute nightmare."
What goes down in the film? Well, an erect penis gets stabbed, a man has sex with a talking boil that so happens to be on a woman's neck and a doctor has a "toddler-sized" cockroach kept inside his anus to name just a few moments.
Yep, this is me right now, too.
"Kuso" is musician Flying Lotus' first feature film. In response to the walkouts, Flying Lotus claimed only 20 people out of 400 left the theater.
He also reached out to his Twitter followers to try and set the record straight.
Well, I'm not sure I'd associate the feeling of "love" with a pygmy eating soup infested with maggots, but who am I to judge?
Apparently, a Sundance rep prepped the audience beforehand, saying,
The film you're seeing tonight will melt your fuckings. There will be no survivors.
Consequence of Sound's Dominick Suzanne-Mayer wrote,
At one point, [actor Tim] Heidecker is framed mid-coitus with what appears to be a hybrid of a turkey and a human torso, and it's maybe the fifteenth most unsettling image in the film.
The film at one point features a woman covered in boils (apparently, everyone who survivors this earthquake in LA has boils on their face) asphyxiating a dude with a strap until he ejaculates slime onto her face.
No. Thank. You.
Needless to say, I will not be watching this film anytime soon so I'll have to take these reviewers at their word.
Will you bite the bullet and watch the grossest movie of all time?
