"The Big One"
Fishboy gets sick while watching television. He vomits a parasite and goes fishing with it. Now Fishboy is on TV.
Violently absurd and culturally cynical, "The Big One" is AABB+RKNWs latest home-made, hand-made short film. Shot in and around East Vancouver's garages, basements, derelict parks and beaches, the film is at once eerie and satisfying in a rare way. Not since Eraserhead" have DIY special effects had such mind wrenching effects on an audience.
Vaseline, spray foam, pig intestines and Jello form the structural and spiritual foundation of the piece. Nuptial worms, a barbershop singing fish, and an antique exploding deep-sea diver constitute some of the film's visual profanity.
A farcical prelude, featuring an interview with famous and fictional film critic Julio Garcia de Cojones, doesn't do much to prepare the audience for the actual film. True to the AABB+RKNW experience, the prelude is longer than the film itself.
Featuring the unwholesome music of AABB, the film stars Alex Reid, Georgia Beaty and the film makers AABB and RKNW in a visual stew. Abominable to some, compelling to others, "The Big One," is a sensory-parasite that you will take with you to the grave.
