BLUE DESERT REVIEWED
“Blue Desert” is an avant-garde film about the changing present. It’s not quite a futuristic tale, but more of a lesson in how the human experience will change as the world grows rapidly around us. It’s a film governed by aesthetic and how the senses process change. While not the kind of material that is going to wow all audience, it needs to be seen at least once. The influence that Yoko Ono had on the material eludes me.
I honestly see none of her fingerprint on this movie. Still, give it a shot.

The Plot Thus Far
In an age devoid of memory and truth, a man, guided by intuitions and dreams, goes off in search of the meaning of life and existence. Revelations and symbols arise on his path, through which he comes to encounter his soulmate in the BLUE DESERT. With plot points based on Yoko Ono’s first art book, GRAPEFRUIT, also featuring quotes from Brazilian author Machado de Assis, and set against the bold architecture of futurist Oscar Niemeyer’s Brasilia, this modernist sci-fi offers a dreamy take on new age spirituality and the physical realm.
