As bad as this film is, Wallis and McLeod redeem it with their acerbic wit. Together, they talk over the film, calling attention to its many faults, exchanging zingers, and expressing disbelief at the sheer badness of the film. McLeod even adds some inventive props. The result is a highly engaging affair that keeps the audience engrossed throughout the film. To this end, Cinema Fiasco succeeds not only by the quality of their critiques but by fostering a sense of community in the theatre.
Next week, Cinema Fiasco will be razzing Reptilicus, a Danish film about a giant prehistoric reptile. The movie will be bad. Wallis and McLeod, on the other hand, will bring their best.
Blur, San Cisco, The Vaccines, Ruby Boots and The Wombats are just some of the bands we're presenting in the coming months.
