Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn

Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn ★★★★

Philadelphia Film Festival 2021

Downright absurd and bonkers, and bolder than any modern satire I have previously seen. Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn is a new breed of comedy that invites us to question the hypocrisy of our societal values in a fun and exhilarating manner. The film is very playful in giving context to both historical and contemporary Romania. Radu Jude is the patron saint of Romanian cinema. He knows how to capture viewers attention and take them on an wild ride through the reality of Eastern Europe, provoking questions and providing laughs along the way. I will admit, there’s plenty of graphic content here that won’t click with the masses, but to hell with them. This film is courageous in its efforts and i applaud the Berlinale jury for awarding of the Golden Bear. One of the year’s most important movies.
