Some of the best pillow talk I’ve seen in a film came in Bunny & The Bull. The title of this blog post, being the best example. It also helps me realize a new theory on film. If you see a penis, it’s a comedy; if you see a vagina, it’s a drama. It explains why women laugh when I remove my pants.
I was inspired to watch this based on Julian Barratt’s scene which has made it, rightfully so, onto the Youtube. It’s quite a funny movie, but also, it’s exceptionally sweet. The heartbroken Stephen is convinced to pick up and leave England with his friend Bunny. The two go on a crazy European road trip.
The style of the film reflects a direct influence of Terry Gilliam. It’s mixture of stop motion and live action is interesting. It creates a visual effect for the film which vastly enhances the narrative. It creates a backdrop to the story which shows the insanity of the storyteller (Stephen).
