June-ing the Cult: The Movie Rat and Zokkomon

When Bubbawheat was looking for some cultish films to watch in June, and when a foreign title was one of the qualifiers, I knew I’d have something to add. Some of his thoughts are in line with mine on Zokkomon (2011) but I added a blurb with my perspective a few years after seeing the film, and it’s always interesting to see someone’s fresh perspective. Check it out!

Flights, Tights, and Movie Nights

Zokkomon 2011

My June-ing the Cult month is winding down as I get to my last two which are also the two most recent films in this line up. Over at the The Movie Rat, Bernardo suggested that I check out Zokkomon, which is only five years old at the moment and was actually distributed by Disney World Cinema. Aside from that, I had no idea what I was getting into other than I assumed there would be at least some musical numbers based on what little I’ve seen out of Bollywood. What I ended up getting was a weird mix of Batman, Harry Potter, with a little Matilda and even the Karate Kid thrown in for good measure. The high point was the colorful characters and the touch of a greater message that was only slightly heavy handed. Very fun film and easily recommended.
