Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Drop the Soap
There are days when this job gets a little...weird. You would think that any position that has you screening films of such caliber as Nude Nuns With Big Guns (2010) and Invasion of the Bee Girls (1973), one might be prepared for anything that comes across your desk.
You'd be wrong. So very wrong.
When I get an email from one of our former editors with the subject "Movies you have GOT to see", I feel the slightest tinge of trepidation. This is the same editor who showed me such classics as Vampire Girl Meets Frankenstein Girl and an anime series where the primary characters gain superpowers by drinking breast milk. Seriously.
Among the films listed in the message, I was quite surprised to see that one was listed as an official selection of the Sundance film festival. I mean, since when did we ever want to watch movies that people might actually consider art? Well such is the case for Tub (2010).
Paul jerked off in the shower. Paul just impregnated his bathtub.
Read it again.
Yeah, it's like that.
The fact that the 12 minute film, written and directed by Columbia film-school graduate Bobby Miller was selected for afore-mentioned film festival in 2010 is a testament to how creepy/funny the film manages to be with its absurd premise, and it really has to be seen to be believed. As such, it comes highly recommended for those with the properly warped world-view. Check out the trailer below.
