1h 25min | Drama | 29 October 2010 (USA)
Gandu is an angry young man who raps about his hatred of life, and of his mother. He and his rickshaw-puller friend enter the world of smack, rap, porn and horror. Reality and fiction, surreal and bizarre come together. Can Gandu survive?
Yea yea, purposeless life, meaningless existence, emptiness engulfing him. Life for this guy – Gandu sucks real bad. But the movie does not need to suffer from emptiness also. period.
The movie has a weird sorta nihilism all the way. A movie like Salo by Pasolini with probably the same intentions as Q’s Gandu turned out so much better than this.
Sex used to add shock value, weird characters, Irritating lyrics, dirty bleak world of Gandu, close and jerky camera shots, no story, whore mommy with no explanation of her intentions, weird Bruce lee sorta friend/ rickshaw puller- makes for a good headache in the end.
