Sticky Drama (England, USA 2015, Jon Rafman & Daniel Lopatin)
The nightmare of early-teen tribalism and confused mutant angst is re-enacted as an apocalyptic live-action role-play game in this music video for a dysphoric EDM anthem about ejaculation by Oneohtrix Point Never. (The man behind the Oneohtrix mask, Daniel Lopatin, co-directs with art’s overlord of tech-grotesquerie, Jon Rafman.) I texted Dan about the video. He said it represents the “cinema of pubescent transgression”— see also: Todd Solondz’s “Welcome to the Dollhouse” (1995), Larry Peerce’s “Child of Rage” (1992), and Neil Jordan’s “A Company of Wolves” (1984).
The Cell (USA, Germany 2000, Tarsem Singh)
A psychopathic serial killer preserves the bodies of his victims and turns them into his dolls. A child psychologist has only 48 hours to use a new method to get into the mind of the killer and save his next victim. For this thriller, Tarsem Singh brings together aspects of body and depraved mind, employing powerful visuals in the unmistakable aesthetic of the turn of the millennium.
