quietearth [Celluloid 03.13.12] post apocalyptic scifi experimental avant-garde



Early reviews have pegged Richard Weiss (also known as 0)The Book as a modern Alice in Wonderland, but we see it as a welcome return to the more obscure and far out space operas of the 70s like Flesh Gordon, Zardoz or Buck Rogers on drugs all jumbled up with a Fellini influence.

The film is about a writer and his family who are on the verge of a potentially great stride with the publication of his newest book. What happens next is so completely bizarre and surreal that the words Sci-Fi may not do this one justice.

Weiss describes his insane vision thusly: "It's, first of all, a visual trip, a colorful and weird kaleidoscopic view of an optimistic future. It explores parallel universes, telepathy, time traveling, subliminal manipulation and free will, in an entertaining way."

Not a clue when any of us will be able to see the marvel that is The Book, but I think we're getting a screener for it which brings a smile to my face.
