La Folie

A mesmerizing journey through a visual kaleidoscope of weirdness and splendor.
5/5

Review

Jessica Batson‘s flamboyant and experimental short film, a vivid journey into the eccentricity and offbeat fashion of the early 1970s, unfolds as a captivating showcase of styles and peculiarities. Featuring the talents of Joey Ohls, Kate Lý Johnston, and Madison Wyborny, the narrative deliberately eschews a traditional story structure, aiming instead to evoke the spirit of the era with a delightful sense of bizarreness.

Batson’s masterful direction, combined with wild production and costume design that vividly captures the bygone era, creates a visual feast that immerses viewers in a world of vibrant colors and unconventional aesthetics. The film’s refusal to adhere to a linear plot adds to its allure, allowing each frame to serve as a canvas for interpretation.

Joe Martinez Jr.’s stellar cinematography seamlessly navigates the flamboyant set, enhancing the film’s vibrant and surreal atmosphere. The talent of Ohls, Johnston, and Wyborny shines through, effectively translating Batson’s intentions into a mesmerizing spectacle of visual treats and weirdness. Overall, Batson’s colorful masterpiece stands as a testament to the power of experimental filmmaking, inviting audiences to revel in the splendor of an era through a lens of delightful peculiarity.
