The Cosmic Dope – A Plant Experience – by CLEMENTE
The experimentation of the effects of a new and unknown species of orchid: an impeccable style exercise
The Cosmic Dope – A Plant Experience by the Brazilian director CLEMENTE, born in San Paolo, is presented as the fourth episode of a supposed scientific documentary, dedicated to the experimentation of the effects of a new and unknown species of orchid.
In the America of the ‘60s, the scientists Alan Jones and Eric Bobson recruited the young and perfectly healthy Nancy, in order to test the effects of this mysterious plant on the human mind. The Cosmic Dope series is intended only for an audience over the age of 18, due to the explicit contents (after all, drugs, even if unknown, is still drugs) (yes, there is irony). The short is a perfect product: light and fully enjoyable. Watch out to keep the director’s name in mind.
CLEMENTE lets himself go to an impeccable style exercise, with tropical and vintage atmospheres. Surely, thanks to the symmetrical frames and the narrative methodology, the comparison with Wes Anderson springs to mind, which is always a pleasure.comments powered by Disqus
