If you’ve never given much thought to whether or not you wanted to watch a surreal, post-apocalyptic Ethiopian love story, you should, because you’re definitely going to want to check out Crumbs. The film, which fits all of these criteria, recently premiered, and if this trailer is any indication, this is going to one hell of a ride.
You can’t help but get an Alejandro Jodorowsky vibe from this short look at Crumbs. There’s a definite kinship with films like El Topo and The Holy Mountain. There is all kinds of craziness going on here, and the entire trailer is full-to-bursting with stark, unsettling imagery. There’s what appears to be an evil Santa Claus, a Nazi with what looks like Mickey Mouse ears, decrepit carnival rides, lions, and much more. And that’s not even counting all the strange things tumbling through space, like knick-knacks, a Michael Jackson album, and a toy sword (when we hear about the first scene in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, where a lightsaber reportedly falls to the surface of a planet, this is how I picture it looking).
