Description

"A glorious, poisonous, everything-in-the-pot treatise on the state of the world today."— Mark Asch, Little White Lies

"With thrilling dexterity and acerbic wit, finds a way to mock crass commercialism, cultural misogyny, corporate greed, worker exploitation, bigotry, social media hate, and the many systems and forces conspiring to crush us all."— Nick Schager, The Daily Beast

"Radu Jude as one of the most idiosyncratic, uncompromising, and intellectually vigorous of living filmmakers." —Seth Katz, Slant Magazine

Exploding conventional boundaries of narrative and form, Radu Jude (Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn) charts a lacerating course through one day in the life of a severely overworked film production assistant, Angela, who drives around Bucharest on her latest gig: filming work accident victims auditioning to be in a safety equipment video for a German multinational corporation. At the same time, the sleep-deprived Angela upkeeps her own side project—a face-filtered, trash-talking, right-wing alter ego with more than 20,000 viewers that serves as the film’s perverse Greek chorus. Intercutting all this with footage from Romanian director Lucian Bratu’s feminist 1981 film Angela Moves On, following the travels of a female cab driver around the city’s same sights and locations, Jude initiates a conversation with his country’s past and present, while engaging in a meta-commentary about the ability of the captured image to exploit, and to contort the truth.
