Sundance 08 Reviews: ‘Otto’ and ‘Funny Games’

We’ve got two new reviews for you this evening from the Sundance Film Festival, which is still taking place in Park City, Utah. First, we have a review of WIP’s remake of Funny Games (review), which will hit a theater near you on March 14. The other review is for Bruce LaBruce’s Otto; or, Up With Dead People, which can be found inside. The review is a very special one (considering I walked out after an hour) so enjoy! Watch for more Sundance coverage soon and click here read all of our reviews.

Last night I caught the first hour of Bruce LaBruce’s OTTO, which I was extremely excited for. I knew it was a gay zombie film, so I definitely thought I knew what I was getting into (especially with the image of the guy f-cking a corpse), but what I saw was incomprehensible and quite terrible, in my opinion. Since I didn’t stick it out until the end I didnt feel like I should be writing a full review, so instead I decided to be as artsy as Bruce LaBruce – enjoy OTTO, the Haiku:


Pretentious Garbage
Penises, Lots of Colors
Didn’t Get the Joke
