Before the Blerta bus and Goodbye Pork Pie's famous yellow mini hit the road, some friends with more energy than cash dressed up as mad doctors and scarfie crims, and began making movies. This freeform short about running late is an early product of a group of schemers who were key in the Kiwi film renaissance. Geoff Murphy plays the man in a hurry, and Bruno is Dr Brunowski. Originally screened with live music, here it’s jazzed up with a 2012 soundtrack, led by Murphy on vocals; the result is an unbottling of sheer youthful filmmaking pep. Warning: final credits not to be trusted.
I woke up in the morning, I’m gettin’ out of bed / Gotta hurry hurry faster faster because I’m going outta my head.– Soundtrack
