Director: Jan Kwiecinski, Alexey Fedorchenko, and Harmony Korine
Stars: Val Kilmer, Igor Sergeev, Darya Ekamasova, Tomasz Tyndyk
Every good film festival needs at least one genuine mind-fuck; amongst this year’s packed Tribeca lineup, the absurdist anthology The Fourth Dimension unquestionably fits the bill. That shouldn’t come as a surprise once you see eccentric filmmaker Harmony Korine’s name attached. Tapping into some more of the weirdness that birthed 2009’s Trash Humpers (a movie about, yes, people who hump trash), Korine contributes “The Lotus Community Workshop,” a segment in which Val Kilmer plays a horrendously dressed motivational speaker named Val Kilmer. Let that sink in for a second.
Not to be outdone, Russian director Alexey Fedorchenko presents “Chronoeye,” about an ineffective time traveler, and Polish shotcaller Jan Kwiecinski’s “Fawns,” which has something to do with the apocalypse.
What does it all mean? We won’t know until we see The Fourth Dimension next week, but you can definitely bet on one thing: the Gravediggaz’ “Defective Trip (Trippin’),” which seems like the perfect viewer-played soundtrack, will finally have a proper home for revival.
