A man with a samurai sword wants revenge on a DJ for ruining his niece’s school dance.

By Omeleto

.

.

Trevor’s niece prepared a special dance for her crush, but the DJ didn’t play the right song at the event. Now, Uncle Trevor is set to avenge her, armed with love, guts and a samurai sword.

Writer/director Patrick Muhlberger has fashioned a charming, endearing riff on the revenge tale, juxtaposed against a classic teen coming-of-age story, complete with awkward yearning and heightened feelings.

Blending deft comedy with the polished look of a music video, the film is stuffed with lots of warm family moments, as well as a few off-color jokes and a good amount of blood and awkward dancing.

The buoyant pace of the musical elements of the film, as well as the comedy, keep the story bubbling along, and the dark elements are balanced with a hilarious sense of commitment that sometimes verges on the surreal. It’s a tricky balance, but the result is a movie that is whimsical and heartwarming — but with enough bite to keep things from getting too saccharine.

With this mix of elements — as well as strong performances by the cast, who captures both the seriousness of the emotional situation as well as the absurdity of the drama — “Pop Music” is a distinctive, memorable film with a strong visual identity and a universal emotional appeal.

Seth Earnest composed the song, “Give Me This Dance,” for the film. Listen to it at http://omele.to/2I3JMnH.
