The Institute

Enigmatic and self-indulgent, The Institute is a documentary about a scavenger hunt that took place in San Francisco, I think. Honestly, I'm not entirely sure. You can trust very little in The Institute. Are the people being interviewed still participating in this surreal, Dadaesque game? Are the film-makers? From what I gather from information on the internet, it does seem over. I had more questions than answers from this film, and if the game is indeed over, that's a shame. Although I would never be a part of a club that would have me as a member, I would be interested in participating in this weird scavenger hunt. It seemed like a bunch of culty, conspiratorial, breakdancey, sasquatchy fun.
