This short has won a place in my heart because it sums up the 90s so well – it’s punk, it’s MTV editing, it’s held together by a plot as flimsy as its underpants, it’s silly, it’s sexy! It might as well be called Steal Lola Steal.
It’s a rapid-fire look at life in an Australian apartment bloc, populated with two-dimensional young turks obsessed with various oddities (hey, that’s the new generation down to a T!). There’s no time for characters, cuz we have to chase the mystery of the disappearing underpants. Highly amusing, director Carla Drago does in nine minutes what it takes “The Real World” a whole season to accomplish; get everybody to hate each other. Well worth a look.
