Plot – Spoilers:
A crazy man lives on bare resources in a rundown bunker in what appears to be a post-apocalyptic world. He distills a high-proof and potent spirit from everyday eatables and knocks himself out of his loneliness, though he tries to perceive loneliness as a woman he’s in love with.

Into his world arrive a young girl and boy who look desolate and hungry. In exchange for a place to stay and eat, he puts them to work on an elaborate and fantastical project converting the ruins he lives in, into a surrealistic wonder made from cardboard, wood and tape. The girl is charmed by his ramblings and there is an instant bond between them while the boy is wary, yet powerless and emasculated.

We Are the Flesh with its ending leaves things open to interpretation but there is probably some God, Adam, Eve and Lucifer thing going on here as well.

Depends on a persons usage of the word nigger. It can also just mean outsider. It is your inner-predudice that interprets the word and you may have not got the context right. Listen to RnR Niger by Patti Smith where she subverts its image as just a racist slur.
Then again this place if full of meme-quotes by pointless people. ..fuck off nigger.. is only slightly better than ..not my proudest wank.. both intelectually low and lack any sense of inventiveness but expected by the i-generation of non-thinkers.

And this place is also full of people who writes out irrelevant longwinded pieces of their life story that nobody asked or even cares about.

If they do not care how come they love their kibble. I just fucking hate people who think they are gods about what someone can and can not say. That is purely upto the people who run this site who thankfully do not give a shit as long as we do not post dismembered bodies to them.

As far as Im concerned, I honestly dont give a shit what people post here, but the one thing I do hate are hypocrites who think they’re above it all. I’ve seen several instances where people would judge or allude to others for the same things that they’re guilty of themselves and their comment history speaks for itself.

You have to be a bit careful because most people write anon and others can just copy their name.

Weird. Really effed up. It grows on you. The more you think about it after watching it, the more you like it.

This is a masterpiece of effedup cinema. There is nothing gratuitous about any of the fucked up things going on… if anything there are a lot of subtle (or not) messages behind… This is one of the very best effedup movies I’ve seen in a while. It stays with you way after the credits roll
