2 Everything 2 Terrible (Tokyo Drift)

Everything Is Terrible
USA 2010 / 55’

Pop culture in the garden of memory. The answer to the question of which film you would take if you were to be stranded on a desert island becomes rather obvious after watching 2 Everything 2 Terrible 2: Tokyo Drift. American found footage mixed with fragments from documentary reports, commercials, feature films, music videos and all sorts of material that appeared on video cassettes in the 1980s and 1990s, this is the essence of VHS esthetics. A production by the enthusiasts from the group Everything Is Terrible, this is a short overview of everything we watched on home video some 30 years ago. An answer to the question of what the meaning of such a project might be can be found in the words of the Chicago Tribune: "The results may be nonsensical, but it's pop cultural commentary all the same."
