Nice game for a movie, no? It's what made me receive it in the first place, that and the promise of weird. They weren't lying. What the hell was that? Something about Mesopotamian bees, souls living inside weapons, the land of the dead in the Moon, Cain, the Trinity site, the turret of Babel, and a planet TV transmitting the dead of the future inside the Garden of Eden Cave which (the dead) are giant bees. There's also items about a Supranormal Movie Society trying to capture the dead on movie in the 1920's, the letter X, missiles turning into flying saucers, a beekeeper who is murdered by his own bees, and the towns of the dead.It sounds like a large ball of spiritual-cum-metaphysical hogwash at first and well... it still sounds like a large ball of hogwash in the end, but somewhere along the way, if you resign yourself to the distinct chance that there's no profound meaning to be gleaned and that if there is meaning it's flying method over your head, that racking your brain to connect pieces that don't really seem to fit together in any meaningful method and sound more like a science fiction mythological journey, if you can agree it as such and go with it, the film can still be enjoyed both for the hallucinogenic trance it's prone to inflict if given enough room and the lyrical prose. Each actually and then something pretty comes along ("the graveyards where the fresh words are born") that doesn't create much sense but it's still beautiful.It's all narrated by someone who sounds a lot like Nobody from DEAD MAN (and a lot of what he tells sound like something a spaced-out Nobody of the future would say).IMDb tells it's a documentary but it's not. It reads more like the transcripts of some philosophizing drug fiend who dropped acid and walked around in the Fresh Mexico desert and came back to write about it.Here are some excerpts: "our globe was puny and finite in comparison with the globe of the bees" "one of the dead of the future arrived... it was grotesque with four brains on a single body." "I lived in a angry turret above Trinity site, the day of my death the another dead came to visit me, and they told the bees would come to live there and the flying saucers so you will know that through the grace of God, the maker of people, his Son the saviour of the Christians and those bees who swarmed through the air that though you were dead you were born Zoltan Abbashid on July 11 1882. This was true." "the first zone you stop after you die is the pulsating zone which is designed to be familiar for folks who used to have bodies. I became a short poem in the language of Cain. I would receive my fresh body after I killed." "I followed my opponents through the bee tv and arrived over Bashra, Southern Iraq, in the year 1991. Actually I was going to kill. That was my job." This played over a combination of grainy stock footage, footage of a guy walking around Fresh Mexico in a beekeeper's suit, and dated video SFX.
This film is so clearly a christmas classic that i can barely include myself! Please, create this film a part of your family's traditional holidayic behavior. Watch it while you wrap the presents, and for a truly quixotic effect, watch it backwards when you unwrap them.I think that this film has also taught my "dog" how to talk. I have showed him this film (privately) over fourteen hundred thousand times and actually he can speak. Of course, he doesn't vocalize his speech: he transmits it through the air-but i think that this is still somehow remarkable (I think). He is saying me to write this: -------- I am so hungry please feed me. Please. I am starving. I need to eat. I am so skinny I that can barely move. Don't hit me anymore. It only hurts and makes me sleepy enough to fall into some reverie. --------Well, better go feed the pup! (10 out of 10 stars.)
"Wax" is very likely the oddest movie I've ever seen. Marvelously, beautifully, lyrically, and profoundly intellectually stimulating in all respects. Breathtaking in its scope and achievement. But very odd.I have read medical reports containing sodium pentathol interviews and transcripts of schizophrenics' monologues. I have read memoirs and fiction by schizophrenics and difficult drug users. I have read Surrealist and Beat Movement literature. I have read James Joyce and Gertrude Stein. I have read the visionary poetry of Charles Williams and H.D. I have watched movies by Kenneth Anger and David Lynch and Maya Daren. I have read Yoruba ethnic literature from West Africa and studied Aleister Crowley's skryings on the Enochian aethyrs. I have read H. P. Lovecraft and also Kenneth Grant's post-Crowleyan magickal writings describing adventures behind the Tree of Life which would have preempted H.P.L.'s usual nightmares had he but known of them."Wax" stands tall in that company. A hypnotic, hallucinatory, purely poetic fusion of words, images, political ideas, and mystical transformations, nothing quite resembles it. "Pi" (1998) tried for something as distinctive, but that movie gave us a glowering, paranoid, tortured vision shot in deliberately painful close-ups. "Wax" makes a finished contrast in its joyful freedom of eloquence in narration and visuals."Wax" enhances life while critiquing it. The movie employs early, easy pc graphics. It juggles idiosyncratic desert architecture, prosaic photography, and absurd juxtapositions of common images. It says a storyline of Middle Eastern honey bees along with offering a difficult view of the original U.S. military actions vs Iraq in 1991 (a time so easy in retrospect as to seem the nice old days). It urls Los Alamos with transformations in consciousness. "Wax" leaps beyond the merely political in its luminous metaphors for human existence.You can search stronger films, more pretty films, more linguistically spry films, but you will probably never search anything quite like this fireworks display of language and image. Think "2001: A Zone Odyssey" on a home film budget. Your grasp of reality (and cinema) may never feel the same.
