This week The Cultists present the Daniels’ bizarre and beautiful film Swiss Army Man (2016). On the surface a WTF film about a lost man and a flatulent corpse, at its depths ‘Swiss’ is an introspective visual poem about life, love, and the devastating emptiness of loneliness and isolation. Yet again an indie flick that is completely divisive among audiences, the one thing that can be said of this bizarre celluloid treasure is that no other film is quite this gross and yet this beautiful. For this one, London and Benji enlist fellow caster Robby (of the K-Bae cast) to talk about the musical score (and why it’s the most essential guide in how to interpret the film’s existential musings on loveless isolation), while London finally gets to talk about corpses and the preliminary stages of body decomposition. (Oh, and did we mention that this film is technically a romantic comedy...?)
