Geneva Jacuzzi’s Casket

In Chris Friend’s Geneva Jacuzzi’s Casket, it’s “Los Angeles 2066AD: The Pleasure U BioDrone, Kate Shaw’s only assistant, has contracted an undiagnosed mental disease. The BioDrone’s Head, inside a reprogramming bag, continuously calls to Kate’s brain with strange visions.” It’s experimental, and WTF!

“The BioDrone’s Head, inside a reprogramming bag, continuously calls to Kate’s brain with strange visions.”

No, I don’t understand the story, either. What Geneva Jacuzzi’s Casket is… well, it’s a techno music video featuring some incredible imagery from the mind of indie filmmaker Chris Friend. It’s an interdisciplinary journey into the mind of Friend with extensive use of CGI and visual effects. He shows all indie filmmakers that creating powerful computer-generated images is within their grasp.

As a film, Geneva Jacuzzi’s Casket is a visual assault on the brain, and I loved it. It’s not just a music video but reminds me of the pop art of the 1960s. I wish I could understand the lyrics over the music, as it might have allowed me to find some kind of story behind the visuals. Fans of the WTF experimental will enjoy Friend’s short film. Others will just say, “What The F**k!”
