Richard Kern's X is Y is a slight exercise in all things anarchic and
attributable to No Wave, an underground cinematic movement in Lower
East Side New York. It's a visual kaleidoscope and an auditory
cacophony, as it shows a young woman (Tomoyo) showing off her automatic
fire arms set to a soundtrack of thrash metal and repetitive
busy-signals from somebody who keeps trying to call the phone number
666-6666. Combine this with Kern's predictably grimy visual style,
filled with scuzzy production values and heavy grain, but ostensibly
lacking an extractable idea (does this concern female empowerment? The
power of guns?) and you have a short that, again, works more on an
experimental basis than the basis of being a short film.Starring: Tomoyo. Directed by: Richard Kern.
