Following a trio of friends around town as they dance choreographed routines in grocery stores and give acting workshops in Bingo halls, "Ford Clitaurus", true to its name, is a hilarious head-scratcher. It’s best to watch without knowing much. As in, stop reading this right now and press play above. If you’re still here I’ll go on. An aspiring artist struggles to find his voice, his sexual identity, and the meaning of creativity. That’s the synopsis meant to throw you off, but this is no coming-of-age movie about suspended adolescence in Salt Lake City. It’s a free-for-all sketch film that comes out of nowhere and keeps getting weirder throughout. The chemistry between the three leads sets it loose. But it’s also well-shot, filled striking compositions and visual flourishes. If it’s not completely clear at this point, I’ll be blunt: this film is amazing, and it’s going straight into my watch repeatedly pile.
Directed by MP Cunningham. Starring MP Cunningham, Taylor Young, Bryce Van Leuven. Director of Photography: AJ Molle.
