Bunny Chow

Directed By: John Barker


Heavily indebted to such slacker flicks as, well, Slacker and Dazed and Confused, the one line Hollywood pitch for this flick would certainly be “A South African Clerks with comedians instead of cashiers.” The title refers to a local delicacy that involves the mash-up of a bunch of produce with some bread, a metaphor for the diversity of modern South Africa.

The story puts the pot in “melting pot”, as we watch these stoner dudes take a road trip to a festival in search of fame, fortune and laughs. It’s got the trappings of a better film, but unfortunately the jokes land flat, and the stark black and white photography doesn’t engage the way it might have. A disappointment.

Grade: C
