Top Ten Reasons To See Contractor's Routine.
(Now at Lumiere Theater till June 9th)
By Carey “Trip” Giudici.
Our busy schedules make it a good idea for everyone to do more than one thing at a time.
Here's a good start: go see San Francisco filmmaker Yuri Tsapayev's new very independent and thought-provoking film, Contractor's Routine as soon as you can. After all, where else will you be able to:
Discover what happens when a meteorite drops into your water glass.
Be ready to defend yourself against threatening fantasy lovers.
Begin deciding how you can create again that which you have destroyed.
Learn two novel things to do with a common porcelain appliance.
Become a superior mahogany shopper.
Debate the ethics of Octomom.
Learn why you probably shouldn't join a chorus.
Spot the moment when a habit becomes an addiction.
Answer the question, “Are you even or odd?”
Begin addressing those nagging issues with your mother.
In other words, Yuri Tsapayev's high-energy new film has something for everyone, with an episodic narrative that touches on many key challenges of being an individual today.
In bursts of color, concepts and movement, it shows the protagonist Jacob and his alter ego Esau discuss the best way to refit the universe.
And it's a morality play, with a series of quixotic appearances by superstar Tom Sizemore as the Art Instructor, about a man running headfirst into uncharted moral territory.
