Armless Trailer: If You Feel Anything, Just Start Screaming

No Comments

Excellent advice generally but not to a man that has Body Integrity Identity Disorder, a real problem where people feel the compulsion to chop off various parts of their anatomy in order to feel a sense of wholeness. This my friends, is a very bad problem.

Which will probably make a pretty funny movie. Let’s let the synopsis tell the full story.

ARMLESS tells the story of John, a man who suffers from Body Integrity Identity Disorder, a real-life psychological condition in which an individual paradoxically doesn’t feel “whole” unless he loses one or more major limbs. When he leaves his wife and goes to find a doctor willing to amputate his arms, it triggers a twisted romp filled with mistaken identities, missed chances, and tragic consequences. ARMLESS utilizes the structure of a classic farce, combining it with a darkly philosophical tone. It also explores the ways in which a culture with so much wealth can come to fetishize suffering. But at its heart, ARMLESS is a fable about acceptance, a meditation on trust, love and marriage.

The trailer, fortunately, makes the movie seem a bit more fun. I love movies that come from bizarre angles like this. Take a look see. “Armless” stars Daniel London, Janel Moloney and Matt Walton and will be out sometime soon.

Endy is a slightly mangy and gristly citizen of the Great White North. He loves movies big time. How big? In Canada, back in the old days in the ice city where he lived, there would just be one theatre that would be allowed to show any given movie. Some of these theatres were not the giganto-plex or mall theatres that we know and love today. No no, these were the kind of theatres where you had to wait Outside to see a movie. When a big moving picture would open in these single theatres, beaver pelt sporting fellas like Endy would have to wait outside in line for hours while fighting off the human hankering giant Polar Bear or packs of Endy knawing timber wolves. Endy is a dedicated movie watcher. Otherwise, Endy loves him a good Moose jerky, football teams with manly names like the Steelers or Vikings and the thawing embrace of his fine German woman. All these things are good. But you know what is best.
