Bad Things That Could Happen
I am mesmerized by This Is It‘s film BAD THINGS THAT COULD HAPPEN. The film details different scenarios in which, um, bad things could happen. The sets and costumes are all constructed by cardboard and acted out by actors playing flies, mice, teeth, and hammers among other things.
It’s super stylized and reminds me of Fine Young Cannibals and New Order videos from the 1980s. They say “Bad Things That Could Happen is a self explanatory film made up of seven short scenes. Playing with scale and bringing objects to life, the film creates a subverted world where the mundane becomes absurd.”
Absurd and beautiful.
