Kevin Abstract - ARIZONA BABY Music Album Reviews

The BROCKHAMPTON star’s latest solo album is an often powerful document by a queer artist who has weathered life’s bruises.
In a move inspired by Shia LaBeouf’s bemusing catalog of durational work, Kevin Abstract recently endured 10 hours on a treadmill on a suburban street of his hometown, Corpus Christi, Tex. While running, the BROCKHAMPTON singer and rapper multi-tasked: He took selfies, signed sneakers, posed with a baby, and mumbled along to the chorus of his recent single, the yearning gay love song “Baby Boy.” Abstract vaguely told one fan that the performance was to teach empathy—indeed, you could interpret it as an allegory for the upstream battle to make it out of suburbia for so many kids—but that didn’t save it from feeling like a stunt.

2 Rabbits Review

Wascally Wabbits




There is zero doubt that writer/director Alfonso Poyart is an enormous fan of Quentin Tarantino. It's pretty much a given from the very first moments of "2 Rabbits". It's a chaotic view of criminals in a constant state of clashing with each other. The problem is that it becomes increasingly difficult to discern who is fighting who and what exactly they are trying to do.

There are a lot characters that appear, disappear and reappear, but it's Edgar (Fernando Alves Pinto) who keeps reappearing most often. When we first see him, he is a lazy guy who spends his time watching porn and playing video games, but he is also a techie. And he has a plan. It's one that is difficult to follow, but we do know that he is seeking revenge and he returns to São Paulo to exact that revenge.
The path that takes us through Edgar's plan includes people in all walks of life, including a crazed gangster, a corrupt politician, a pizza delivery guy, a defense attorney and lots of low-level dirtbags. One of the problems is that we never get much of a feel for any of them. They fly in and out of the story incredibly quickly. Add in Poyart's insane amount of quick cuts and your head will no doubt spin like mine did. It's akin to watching a movie at slight fast-forward.

Forget about trying to follow the plot here. You would need a couple of days to watch it over and over, while stopping periodically to take notes. This doesn't mean it's not a fun watch, but don't expect to extract too much information from it. It's more fun ride than coherent story.

The toughest thing about watching "2 Rabbits" is that, because of its frenetic pace, the subtitles fly by so quickly that it is near impossible to read them. Also, the subtitles that go by slower are also tough to read because the letters on the screen often blend into the picture, making them unintelligible. If you are fluent in Portuguese, it might make this a more pleasant watch. If you aren't, be content to watch lots of action that you may or may not understand.

Should I buy the Nokia 7.1?

But these cameras are pretty good, and the display is lovely.Its build quality is above average though, and with Android One on board and decent performance it’s an excellent mid-range phone with the advantage of three years of guaranteed security updates.
