| A Bizarre & Engaging Bottle Film
A low budget film that takes place in a one room. That statement in itself is probably enough to turn many viewers away from any film, but what director Todd Osleger accomplishes as this mysterious story unfolds within a single small storage unit is quite impressive. When the film opens, you get a heavy Saw vibe, but that's a premature assessment. Kulture Shock! quickly takes a left turn down it's own bizarre path as these three captives seem to be locked in a makeshift classroom by their "teacher", a curiously German voice speaking through a creepy Uncle Sam doll. The unnamed characters have amnesia and are simply referred to by "Uncle" as the colors: Red, White, and Blue.

Something is clearly off and I found myself joyfully exploring the different possibilities in my head as the characters began trying to put the pieces back together through clues in the room. The dialogue between the fellow captives is at times so odd and dry, that I would burst out laughing as I rewound to make sense of them. The innocent, simple-minded Blue was my personal favorite. His sweet, deadpan delivery throughout the numerous non sequiturs he shared with the increasingly frustrated White were a lot of fun to watch.

This is an indie film through and through, which allows it the flexibility to lean harder into it's strange and minimalistic nature. It uses that to it's advantage with the cinematography and editing playing very well together to keep this small bottle movie engaging to the very end.
