Zen Noir

This weekend I finally sat down to watch Zen Noir and I enjoyed it tremendously. In a nutshell, it’s an absurd mystery set in a Zen temple. The film pokes fun at Zen and film noir conventions and features an abnormal amount of oranges. It has a fun mix of slapstick, in-joke and just plain strange humour, but the cinematography is superbly beautiful; the juxtaposition enriches the film and makes it a remarkable experience.

If David Lynch, the Buddha and Woody Allen took acid and made a surrealist mystery, this would be it! ZEN NOIR is a hilarious award-winning independent film that explores buddhism, meditation, life, death & spiritual enlightenment.
