TRIPLE TROUBLE

California Premiere


US CINEMA

US 2022, 84 min, Homer Flynn and The Residents

The Residents have existed over half a century now as one of the singular cultural enigmas of our times: An unclassifiable arts collective-slash-rock band who’ve racked approximately 100 albums and countless memorable stage shows, yet whose members’ identities remain a well-kept secret. Among aficionados, nothing in a vast back catalog remains more sought after than Vileness Fats, a 1970s-era cult movie intended to end all cult movies, left unfinished and unreleased after several years’ work. Its surreal weirdness inspired (and is excerpted in) this brand-new feature project. A skateboarding priest turned plumber (Dustin York) fears a plague of moon fungus and other possibly paranoid perils as he navigates a San Francisco that’s part German Expressionist nightmare, part noir mystery, and all Residents-tial referencing. Shot in high-contrast black-and-white by cinematographer Frazer Bradshaw, this bizarro enterprise is dedicated to late cast member (and longtime vocal collaborator) Gerri Lawlor. —Dennis Harvey
