STICK IT IN YOUR EAR aka VORTEX

STICK IT IN YOUR EAR ignores hierarchy. Softcore sex, self-absorbed “statements,” and random cinematic in-jokes joyfully fight for the upper hand, while everyone looks as if they haven’t showered in days. It’s here, within this smelly, abstract void, that the film loses all sense of self. And stays there. Just like its protagonist. Frozen. Wandering. Morose. Exquisite. If you yearn for a fulfilling cinematic buffer between damaged art and crude exploitation, this film has you covered. It’s enthralling, playful, and charmingly pessimistic -- a modest underground tornado. When the opening title card states, “A story so incredible you may even believe it”, you can. (Joseph A. Ziemba)
