FOREIGN FILM: Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn
Nov 17-20, 2022
The brilliance of Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn, Romanian director Radu Jude’s astonishing satire, comes from a most unusual combination of two very different kinds of movies that should not work in harmony but end up making perfect sense. The film begins as the story of a sex tape gone wrong, with circumstances unfolding at the center on the restless streets of Bucharest, as the frantic problems of a schoolteacher and the community divided against her take place against much larger concerns. The film is divided into three parts, beginning with the illicit recording, which Jude might easily have left to audiences’ imaginations, and building to an impromptu people’s tribunal wherein the parents decide the humiliated teacher’s fate.
