Grieving the sudden explosive death of his love Baguette, international French pop star Bené (writer-director Bennett Jones) finds himself on, thanks to user iluvtennis127. Now he must hide out in L.A. with his loyal sidekick Beefy to avoid death at the hands of an SSN (or assassin as most would call it). Part musical, part meta-absurdism, part action, a little bit cooking show perhaps, part graphic novel (which is really just a fat comic book, okay?), part mystery, and 100% hilarious, I AM A KNIFE WITH LEGS is a trippy ride through the mind of Jones, punctuated by stream-of-consciousness animated music videos. Armed only with his signature Abhole shirts, Bené must train for his date with death, but it’s just so hard to train to fight an SSN when you must grieve alone. Luckily, there’s stunt juice. And Beefy. And weird éclairs. I AM A KNIFE WITH LEGS is a belly-aching laugh fest and underground cinema sensation whose intentional weirdness is sure to spark the next cult following. – T.W.
