Monica Cook’s Beautifully Disturbing Short Film, “Deuce”

Previously featured by Zo on Coilhouse, Monica Cook‘s art is consistently visceral, textural, and… juicy.

Via Wurzeltumblr.

Conceived and animated by Cook, with music by Martín Capella, the short film, Deuce, “portrays an awkward encounter between a man and a woman that triggers their individual fantasies.” As usual, Cook succeeds in presenting a putrescent sensuality that’s simultaneously off-putting and mesmerizing.

    my first initial reaction! But does keep you engaged. I really didn’t know what to expect. The babies thing kinda through me off. When you said fantasies.. I assumed something more cliche…like prince charming.

    Is it strange if I did not find this particularly disturbing? I thought it was beautifully done and really enjoyed it.

    Amazing work comparable to precision of Jan Švankmajer´s movies.. These are pretty.. odd.. uff. :) When I remember I have grown up on them, I find this video very sweet and have left me only a bit uneasy :) But thanks for presenting it! Monica Cooks seems to be very interesting personality by those few articles around Internetz.
