Experimental filmmaking always walks the fine line between being interesting and being unwatchable. Muzorama does a good job of skirting that line.
It was put together by Elsa Brehin, Raphaël Calamote, Mauro Carraro, Maxime Cazaux, Emilien Davaux, Laurent Monneron, and Axel Tillement in 3D Studio Max and it was inspired by French illustrator Muzo.
It’s weird, very weird. If you don’t go in expecting that you aren’t going to like it. There are people eating people, scenes cut within other scenes, cut between decapitated winking heads. There are melting faces and clones, giant women and dozens of other rich, creepy images. It’s all very surreal but unlike other animations of its class, it makes a certain amount of sense.
If you can get your head around the films logic it’s worth giving it a look, even if you can’t, at 3:12 it’s worth watching if only to tell all of your friends how strange it is.

This film is stylish to a fault. (Style 4.5)
There is no clear story arc so it’s hard to really plot pacing. (Pacing 2.5)
For a project put together in 6 weeks it’s amazingly well done (Polish 3)
It is, by definition, a very “art house” film and it uses many familiar tropes from the genre. (Novelty 3.5)
