Eye For Film >> Movies >> Bastard! (2005) Film Review
Reviewed by: Amber Wilkinson
You can tell by the title of this pop music video that the band Electric Eel Shock are no shrinking violets. Here their message is clear.
The best thing about Alasdair Brotherston's tongue-in-cheek political video is that it is a very animated animation. Everything is moving, from the cartoon band's heads - on springs - to the Mahjong-style tiles.
The targets, also with springy heads, range from the obvious (George Bush, Maggie T, Hitler) to the bizarre (Robbie Williams and Richard Gere).
This is colourful explosion of tongue-in-cheek thrashy garage and you can't help but sing along.Reviewed on: 31 May 2006
