Flux Gourmet (2022)

Coming in September

Critic Reviews:

While there’s a riveting absurdity to a handful of interactions... Strickland seldom manages to make his straightforward narrative inform his more avant-garde acoustic experiments in any meaningful way beyond connecting mechanical dots.

Is this [movie] Strickland’s way of telling us that, in order to stay normal, you gotta at least learn to live with the abnormal? Honestly, I don’t know the answer to that or most of the questions in this strange movie. But I’d be lying if I say I wasn’t intrigued by it most of the time.

Flux Gourmet is a whirlwind and a welcome critique of exhibitionism. Strickland’s direction and script are constantly extenuating each other even when the film starts to feel off-kilter. The performances across the board are entertaining.
