AACHI & SSIPAK
Dir. Jo Beom-jin, 2006
South Korea, 88 minutes
Animated
In Korean, with English subtitles

AACHI & SSIPAK is manic, unadulterated weirdness that deserves a massive cult following!

Its an action Buddy Movie from another dimensionas if Gary Panter and Takeshi Miike collaborated on a Hope & Crosby flick: The Road to Shit City. Con man Aachi is the short one, with more plans than brains, and Ssipak is the big, bald bruiser who thinks with his fistsand hes fallen hopelessly in love with a wannabe-porn starlet, the very pneumatic Beauty (whos much smarter than our heroes). After her anal-chip is tampered with, Beauty becomes the MacGuffin of this movie, the object everyone will kill for.

Oh yeah, you read that correctly: anal chip. It seems the rulers of the future need human excrement for both fuel and building materials, and in exchange for each dump, citizens with the chip get one delicious and mind-altering juicybar. But these yummy narco-popsicles are so addictive that some people are turned into blue mutant dwarves, The Diaper Gangand now they have formed a death cult to take over society

Obsessed with defecation but tasteful enough never to show any brown ploppies, AACHI & SSIPAK is lysergic speedfreak anime for the mayhem crowdthats surprisingly good natured (when its not blood-splattered). The violence is so excessive and over-the-top, it is hilarious, but (thankfully) explicit scatological scenes are nowhere in sightwhich in itself may be a socio-political comment as well

Almost an exhausting movie, and overloaded with delightful eyeball kicks, AACHI & SSIPAK is packed with multiple cultural references (including graffiti), but especially to action films. This South Korean production combines a tight and twisty script (equal to the best episodes of The Venture Bros.), with exciting animation (characters look hand-drawn; and the backgrounds are a combo of CGI and hand-painted) to create a crazy, non-stop, almost sacrilegious meta-movie: An animator isnt a real director! screams a character before kicking someones face in.

Like all good B-movies, theres a metaphorical political message in AACHI & SSIPAK, but its surrounded by so much crazy exploitation good stuff, that even action fans with one-track-minds will be satisfied.

WARNING: If the synopsis didnt give you a hint, this is not a movie for small children or easily-offended adults!
