Film Review: Fried Barry (short film) (2017)

Rate This Movie

SYNOPSIS:

Fried Barry is heroin junkie, that spends his days in a abandoned building walking around tripping from his latest hit, going through his ups and downs and reliving his old memories.

REVIEW:

More short films, kiddies! Today we have FRIED BARRY, written and directed by Ryan Kruger and starring Gary Green.

So again, another super short film, no context in time, just a slice of life to view without history or conclusion. I’m okay with that.

Fried Barry is a junkie, and the film takes us through the peaks and lows of his trip in an abandoned warehouse. The images are visceral and sometimes disturbing, even a bit gross. It might be hard for some people to watch.

The film is listed as “experimental” and there’s a lot of interesting stuff going on here, everything from the sound and score to the visual effects. It may be a difficult viewing, as I said, but it’s also a fascinating look into a world most of us will never see from the perspective of the addict himself.

This film has won a few awards since its release in 2017, and I can see why.
