The External World

Wrongness on a scale usually used to measure earthquakes. Not work safe. Or home safe. Just generally unsafe. If you have 20 spare minutes I can recommend watching this for 17 of them and spending the other three giving your brain a shower.

It’s the new film by David O’Reilly, the Irish artist and animator, co-written by Vernon Chatman of Wonder Showzen glory, and featuring cameos by Adam Buxton and Julian Barrett. It’s a nightmarish thing, occasionally dipping into darkness-by-numbers, but mostly funny and unsettling in equal measure. And it’s visually stunning; all Atari-hued and glitchy, with an attention to detail that rewards repeat viewings – “Scalpel shop – free puppy with every purchase”. What?

It’s also, as I mentioned, ever so wrong.

Look at his website. David O’Reilly is 25. I hate him.

“Hhh. Typical”.
