"i want to kill"
“i want to kill’ is an unhinged, psychedelic romp through the bleak depths of space—both inner and outer. The cardboard sets and low-rent stop motion add to the feeling of urgency and flammability of civilized life. Astronaut Robert Holeman is fed up with suburbia, after years of desires going unrealized and confronting his privilege, boredom, and mortality he’s been nudged into a sort of suicidal/genocidal nihilism stoked by a steady diet of drugs. The violent fantasies, anger, and fear don’t belong to just Robert, but also to his neglected girlfriend and son. ‘i want to kill’ is about catharsis and release. Anger unchecked leads to emptiness, but boy is it funny.
