Flying Lotus’ Debut Feature Film ‘Kuso’ Gets Release Date
Flying Lotus' debut feature film, titled Kuso, now has a release date. Today, a new trailer for the film was posted onto the internet, and with it came the revelation that the film will premiere exclusively on AMC's Shudder streaming service July 21.
The film, which features actors like Tim Heidecker, Zack Fox, George Clinton, Hannibal Buress, Anders Holm and David Firth, debuted at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival back in January. At the time of the premiere, several critics noted the film's grotesque imagery, with The Verge calling it “the grossest film ever made.” Yikes.
The official Kuso plot synopsis reads as follows: "The bizarre, mutated survivors of Los Angeles's nightmarish earthquake broadcast their stories on a makeshift network of discarded televisions."
Needless to say, it's an interesting premise. But not everyone was feeling the film at the time of the premiere. In fact a portion of the audience—which numbered at around 400 people—left the theater before the film even finished. At the time, FlyLo, who dropped a new track called "Twin Peaks" a few weeks back, said it wasn't actually that big of a deal.
"It was only like 20 people out of like 400 who walked out. Wasn't as dramatic as they make it out to be. I tried to warn folks," the talented musician wrote in a tweet shortly after the Kuso premiere.
