Anti-film at its best!
17 October 2001 | by karlericssonSee all my reviews

The fearsome and paid swordsman challenges Zapper. His head flies through the air and lands in the arms of his boss. The head says to the boss 'Sorry boss' and then is silent. Zapper undresses in front of the bad guy. Instead of the beaver You see a flashing star, blinding the bad guy. Everything is played by the actors as if it was Shakespeare, but it isn't Shakespeare - it's far better than that! This isn't pretentious society-glorification. Taken to its maximum (or minimum?) or, in any case, to its extreme, this movie proves that society cannot be taken seriously and especially not entertainment and sex. A film for all those, who have seen enough of main-stream entertainment.
