What's Love Got to Do With It

Rated R 1993

A mediocre program of shorts about the ups and downs of relationships. Best of the bunch is Lee Isaac Chung's Love's Philosophy, in which a young unemployed schoolteacher (Steve Chung) fights with his wife, hangs out with friends, and wallows in a funk. Chung makes good use of the looseness and intimacy of the video format to explore a personal crisis. Pedro & Tony by Don Thomas is a warm and fuzzy clay animation about a gay couple (a rooster and a dog) who quarrel and reconcile. Malcolm Lam's 206 is a pointless and tasteless film-school exercise in horror in which a woman attains liberation by hacking her boyfriend to pieces. Also on the program: films by Haruko Tanaka, Anne Marie Jacir, and Yiuwing Lam. 91 min.
