If you've ever listened to the music of Flying Lotus - or indeed, been to one of his AV shows - you'll probably be aware that the experimental electronic musician doesn't do things by the book.
That goes for his filmmaking too, as his debut feature 'Kuso' demonstrates.
The premiere of the LA musician and filmmaker's work took place at the Sundance Film Festival last weekend, and apparently there were multiple walk-outs because the thing was too just damned gory, grotesque and weird.
As Pitchfork described it, "There’s gore, genital mutilation, a scene where a man has sex with a talking boil, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg."
FlyLo, real name Steven Ellison, took to Twitter to claim that the number of walk-outs was less than reported:
It was only like 20 people out of like 400 who walked out. Wasn't as dramatic as they make it out to be. I tried to warn folks. https://t.co/j3GTtO906o

The film, which stars Hannibal Buress, George Clinton and Tim Heidecker of Tim & Eric, has a plotline that simply states: "Events unfold after a devastating earthquake in Los Angeles."
