THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF ANSE AND BUHLE REVIEWED
“The Further Adventures of Anse and Buhle” follows what happens when a tribe of men meet a tribe of women. The film is a production from the Portland famous Sowelu Theater. While the weird language choices and the heavy handed plot might turn some off, it’s a fascinating look at indie world building. Anse and Buhle are friends, but they find their memories of the past slipping away. Why? Well, because they spend their time clubbing the radiation poisoned to the death.
After a nasty skirmish that kills an elderly woman, they find themselves afoul of a young woman. The woman baits both men against each other, while casting a light on their bizarre lives. The film tries to flirt away from turning the lady into a Delilah figure. But, a foul temptress by any other name is still a foul temptress. What the movie loses by going soft is the ability to make a statement. In that sense, it becomes part of the larger disposable swath of Dystopian fiction. That being said, I admire the ambition of this production.
