This is a 30 minute short film someone sent me on Twitter.

It's unintentionally funny and very fucked.

Posted by SHAstayhighalways, Sun Dec-07-14 05:45 PM

12669014, That last scene is comical on some Looney Tunes shit.

I don't remember us being about to have a dialogue about it.

I can't say I necessarily recommend it.

12669046, Yeah, we discussed this already.

12669082, I'm pretty sure I heard about this here a while ago
Posted by Niq96st, Sun Dec-07-14 10:23 PM
My friend still hasn't talked to me after I asked him to check it out.

It's just...so...

Years later and I still can't put the words together really.

I'm actually surprised too that OKP couldn't have a dialogue about it. It's that weird.
12669099, According to the director, this was a film school assignment

fucked up situation and put it on film.

Mission accomplished.

all the articles I read on this movie (like 3) never mentioned that. I do remember all the articles kept speaking on the race of the movie's maker (white) and the family being black and how this was somehow a stab at black families. idk.

This was quite disturbing from the beginning scene to the bathroom scene and I was like "the mom really ain't gonna go in there and check this shit?" she really just turned up the tv.

like no way a grown ass man can't check his child...i wonder if this situation (the child as the aggressor) ever happens in real life.
12669532, IIRC, a black family was chosen because this sort of

situation doesn't tend to be reported in the news and whatnot with black families (this does not mean, of course, that it does not happen).

It's less a subversion of _all_ black families than it is a subversion of the "Cosby Show" ideal.
12669198, The hell ya'll have me watch?!

Not the most disturbing thing I've ever seen.

I just felt uneasy about it.
