Snowy Bing Bongs Across the North Star Combat Zone (2017)

I was on YouTube watching a video from CinemaWins called Everything Great About Everything Everywhere All At Once. I have liked that series of videos and I thought this would be a fun one to watch. Near the beginning of the video, it called attention to the actor Sunita Mani, who was on the Netflix show GLOW, and who was also in Everything Everywhere All At Once in a small role. The narrator then made a reference to another film that had been produced by the Daniels (the directors of EEAAO) called Snowy Bing Bongs Across the North Star Combat Zone. He recommended it and said that everyone should go an watch it immediately after they finished this video. I was interested so I looked to see where it could be watched. I was able to find it on one of the Amazon Prime channels, MUPI. One free 7-day trial later, I was watching the 40-minute short.

The film starred a comedy dance group called Cocoon Central Dance Team. This included Sunita Mani along with Eleanore Pienta and Tallie Medel.

It is a challenging film to try to explain. The plot synopsis from IMDB gives the idea, “Beach balls. Doctor boners. Farts. Snow. This film, starring Cocoon Central Dance Team, just might have invented its own genre: comedy-dance-sketch-fantasy.”

There is not any real plot to this film. It is a series of vignettes strung together. There were dance numbers in snow, comedy bits and even some musical performances. It was a wild trip. Filled with a ton of creativity, totally unafraid to be weird and original.

The dance routines were very funny. The Cocoon Central Dance Team had amazing facial expressions that made their routines all the funnier.

Written and directed by Alex Huston Fischer and Rachel Wolther, this movie was forty minutes of bizarre scenes and a good time. If you are looking for a tightly woven story, this is not for you. However, if you are willing to let your mind wander and laugh at the insanity of the whole thing, you may just enjoy Snowy Bing Bongs Across the North Star Combat Zone.
