As the directors explain on their Kickstarter, the film hopes to do to Mayan culture what Alien did to little green men, the only difference being that their monster only eats assholes trying to slaughter Mayans. It's basically the only Mayan revenge porn film you'll ever see ... at least until Hollywood steals it for a hit franchise starring Ian Somerhalder or some shit.
Victoria: Screw Birdman; This Movie Actually Is a Single 134-Minute Shot
A while ago we told you about the film Russian Ark, which consists of an uncut 86-minute shot moving through 36 different rooms of a museum and was so grueling to shoot that it almost never happened. Now imagine the same feat, only 50 minutes longer, shot in a city, about a goddamn heist. That's Victoria -- a German film following a Spanish party girl who meets three men that apparently turn out to be a group of thieves as our hero goes from clubber to accidental bank robber.
Did we mention it's all one fucking shot?
So more like Run Birdman Run.
That kind of feels like something we mentioned but can't quite stress enough, considering that such a feat requires the coordination of 150 extras, 22 filming locations, six assistant directors, and three sound crews shooting from 4:30 in the morning in a bleak hope of making a record-pummeling film. So sure, Birdman was kick-ass for its performances, directing, and cinematographer simulating a singular shot the way Rope did ... but that shit is training wheels compared to this, which as far as we can tell has no hype, worldwide release date, or thorough Wikipedia page, despite being something the Academy should be wetting themselves over this very moment. Spread the word.
