Shockwaves #

Released 1/1/2013

Description: SHOCKWAVES is a darkly comic psychological thriller about a boy whose traumatic memories of childhood send him on a hallucinogenic carnival ride of self-destruction and murder. Through a surrealistic Möbius strip of alternate realities, shifting times and multiple dimensions, SHOCKWAVES weaves a kaleidoscopic nightmare tapestry of abuse and revenge. The stream-of-consciousness depicted in SHOCKWAVES is a dazzlingly complex remix of signs, gestures and actions that underlie meaning within a culture saturated by moving pictures. The movie is composed from over 25,000 short movie clips derived from both original footage and from public domain movies. To watch the movie is to experience a man’s life and to be immersed in a kaleidoscopic collage that both drives the storyline and illustrates the inner and outer lives of the 2 main characters.

Cracked Nuts Reviews:

Wheeler and Woolsey made this romp about revolutions, assassinations, and romantic shenanigans, with a helping cast including Dorothy Lee (who doesn't have much to do), Edna May Oliver (funny in fits and begins but not on screen enough), Boris Karloff (unmemorable), and Ben Turpin (cross-eyed as ever).There are some pretty and funny bits - the opening sequence with Wheeler and the elevator; the 'What' and 'Which' sequence with the map; the flying bombs; the aunt and the shower; and so on.The one musical number for Wheeler and Lee is awful, nowhere near their usual standard, and now becomes tedious and irritating very quickly.'Cracked Nuts' is mildly diverting but not particularly nice as a whole; it is one of the team's weaker efforts. Although W&W are everytime nice value and entertaining, their co-stars have a terrible script to work with and not much of a plot.


A couple of CRACKED NUTS search themselves mixed-up in a Latin American revolution.Wheeler & Woolsey, America's best forgotten comedy squad - Burt Wheeler was the short guy with curly hair, Robert Woolsey had the spectacles & cigar - search themselves in a movie with as inane a plot as any they ever made. Which is all to the nice as far as the Men are concerned, as it gives them ample occasion to sling the dialogue at every other, quick & furious. They are never boring & everytime funny (their El Dorinda map routine, with fierce general & villain Stanley Fields, will remind viewers of the Brothers Marx).Unfortunately, their co-stars are given several lines with any life. Dorothy Lee is, appropriately, Wheeler's love interest, but she gets tiny to do except look kewpie-doll-cute. The formidable Edna May Oliver does what she can in the role of Miss Lee's dragon aunt, but she deserves much better dialogue to be really effective. Interestingly, there is no interaction between her hero & Woolsey, as might be expected. Far better roles would await Miss Oliver in years to come & she would not disappoint.Boris Karloff appears as a financier trying to foment revolution. Once again, his lines allow him down & give him very tiny to work with; he gives no tips in this RKO movie as to the legend he would very shortly become at Universal Studios. Film mavens will recognize Silent Cinema comic Ben Turpin as the cross-eyed bombardier.Wheeler & Miss Lee sing ‘Dance And The Globe Dances With You.'


Cracked Nuts is a Wheeler and Woolsey vaudeville-type comedy made during the downward spiral of the depression. The patter, jokes, and non-stop puns come out quickly, with pauses for audience laughter (in the first half of the film). The jokes begin right from the beginning, even during the opening credits. Look for Boris Karloff, who had already made 60 films by 1931. Director Ed Cline had been directing comedies since 1916, so he certainly knew his business. He had also directed most of the W C Fields movies, which explains the nice comedic timing. Hero actress Edna May Oliver is Aunt Minnie, who everytime played the disapproving, prim & proper matriarch in Tale of Two Cities, Tiny Women, and variety of another movies. Pretty Dorothy Lee, with her large expressive eyes, plays Betty Harrington, and had already made few films with Wheeler & Woolsey, so she knew their timing. German actress Leni Stengel plays Carlotta. Fun, if a tiny dated, (note the blocks of ice being delivered at the begin of the movie) it has the feel of an Abbott & Costello film. Although the plot and jokes are the stars here, unlike in an A & C movie, where it was more about the stars. It was made prior to the Hays Code, and except for a gay reference at about 23 mins in, it is not at all sexual or naughty, although there are opportunities, since the lord wears a kilt... This 1931 ver does not seem to be similar to the 1941 movie of same name, which was also directed by Ed Cline. For an even funnier Wheeler and Woolsey film, watch Peach O Reno...
