#FANTASIA: “FRIED BARRY”
By Amanda Gilmore
After another drug bender, Barry (Gary Green) gets abducted by aliens. One of the aliens visitors hijacks his brain and takes control of his body — bringing it on a joyride through Cape Town.
Fried Barry is one of the wildest, craziest movie experiences at this year’s Fantasia Fest! It’s a high-energy psychedelic ride filled with sex, action, comedy and gore. At its core is a controlled, highly comedic performance from Green. For a film as outrageous as this one, a fully committed yet restrained performance is needed and Green fully delivers. It’s also skillfully-directed by Ryan Kruger. Kruger shoots Cape Town as a first-time alien visitor would see the vibrant city. In doing so, he takes the audience on a wild ride through Cape Town and it’s one trip you will never forget.
Fried Barry will be available on-demand through Fantasia Fest Aug 20 – Sept 2.
