Innovative and wildly entertaining!
2 August 2012 | by aeropkinSee all my reviews

The Exquisite Corpse Project has to be one of the most innovative movies out there today! Perfect movie for the youtube generation, the movie is part documentary, part comedy, part sci-fi, part action, and part beautiful madness!

The director Ben Popik proposes an idea to his five comedy-writing friends in the beginning, to write a full-feature film. However, with a few stipulations: sequentially, each writer only could write 15 pages of the movie, and only was allowed to see the previous writer's 5 pages!

The movie starts off switching between documentary and film, and is intriguing enough to want to see what happens! Depicted in the film, are the struggles that occur when working with friends. Each person has a viewpoint, and a vision. When these conflict in a working environment, especially between friends, problems arise that challenge the true bonds between relationships.

Not only is The Exquisite Corpse Project a hilarious montage of ideas and stories, it touches on the personal aspects of what it's like to have legitimate conflict and portrays the reality of relationships.

The movie itself and the documentary aspect were wonderfully woven together. I will see this movie over and over again! Good luck Exquisite Corpse Project!
