no, that was WTC, not WTF.
This is WTF, and precious bodily fluids...
yes, that was truly bizarre...
For some reason the intro song reminds me of the music from the SNL parody of the OC.
Critique here explains er- well, describes it...
I think there's a *little* more to it than that.
Right, so islamic terrrists strike at what they perceive as corrups western morals, like hot lesbian action. Of course, to an ignorant westerner, the whole point of this martyrdom is the 70 virgins. So, they're hypocritical, see? Ha, it's clever, or something. Silly and tasteless, too, but who's counting.
yeah, well, those women were obviously not virgins. If it were that clear, it'd make more of an impact, so to speak. But I get the point you're making.

What disturbs me the most is that whoever made this probably thought it was a moving tribute.
A very archetypal view of 9/11.
I HAS A RENDERING FARM
DO NOT WANT
I think the guy who made them just wants to do lots of hot girls.
and there is something wrong with that?
With a name like "Flesh", I was hoping for zombies.
I was hoping for Gordon.
I think their symbolism broke down when they failed to have a penis rising from the ashes of NYC.
And they were so close...
There is no symbolism there. If you are "reading" the film, you're missing the point. Just feel it. It integrates a sensual view of a city with violence against that city. It integrates the intimate with the urban. It paints a rainbow, of sorts, drawing a spectrum between extremes. It is, in that sense, a study in "provocation".
The main flaw of the film is a technical one. I find myself distracted by the film-maker's use of animated texture maps. "What if it was all about flesh?" -- sure. Cool idea. But this still strikes me as just a little too much a demonstration of a CGI technique -- I got pulled into intellectual contemplation of the application of that technique that draws too much attention to itself here. Offsetting that was the interestingly low-budget stylized explosions -- the small number of static red triangles. It almost works for me, with juxtopositions like that but the knob-twisting on rendering engines distracts a bit too much for my tastes.
This reminds me of the CoE video, from a few years back, "I Like To Watch" only more arty and not quite as crass.
