Watch Brothers of the Head - Alternative Versions.
Directors Fulton and Pepe get full marks for the rare feat of making a
film where the fake-verite style is not a distraction and takes a back
seat to the story and characters.
The film is very deftly crafted, especially considering the subject
matter. After all, the film is about conjoined twins being sold to a
music promoter who wants to make them into pop stars. (The mind boggles
at the heavy-handed way such a story MIGHT have been told.)
And, yes, there is an actual meat and potatoes story here. The fact
that these brothers are conjoined is key to the plot, but mercifully,
it is NOT a one-note gag that the whole film is hung on.
The directors made many interesting and ultimately daring choices, such
as shooting the film in a verite style. Unfortunately, this will beg
obvious (but ultimately irrelevant) comparisons to other fake-verite
films with musical themes.
Another interesting choice was shooting the performance scenes in what
appear to be live takes, rather than having the actors lip sync to a
studio recording. This seems like an insane choice because of the extra
casting and logistic hassles. You'd have to find actors that could
actually play, get them to practice together and then who knows if
they'll be a decent band. But they pull it off. The music is
authentic-sounding pre-punk--an undeniably raw and vital soundtrack.
(I'll buy the soundtrack for sure. They could even put this band on
tour and I'd go see them.) So, here's to insane choices.
There are modest, surreal sequences between some scenes, but the
directors know when to say when on this. The art-house crowd (and the
stoned) are thrown a bone. But normal people will not be left rolling
their eyes or checking their watch. These parts don't feel like art for
The casting is amazing. Using two different actors to play the older
and younger versions of certain characters is yet another interesting
choice. A few of the actors bear such a striking resemblance to one
another that you may find yourself scanning the credits to see if
This is the first narrative film by these two directors and I
wholeheartedly encourage them to make many more films.
