Oh boy, do I have a treat for you today. Normally I wouldn’t post another edition of Cinema of Doom so soon after the last one, but the existence of this little flick was made known to me just last night and it really bowled me over. I couldn’t wait to share it with you.
Umshini Wam (Bring Me My Machine Gun in English) is a short film collaboration between South African hip-hop weirdoes Die Antwoord and writer/director Harmony Korine. It’s been out for a few months, but if you’re like me and it slipped your radar, I’m proud to introduce these 15 minutes of pure, mad genius to you here at Smiling Doom. Seriously, this had me giddily delighted from the first frame to the last. I hope you dig it even half as much as I did. Enjoy.
