BSA Special Feature: Cane Morto: AMO -TE LISBOA ⁄ AN IGNOMINIOUS STREET
ART MOVIE. The full movie.
Cane Morto is haunted by the vicious trash-talking spiritual guide who insults and implores them to recover their graffiti gonads by foregoing the limp-dicked mural route that all of their friends are following.
Not quite a manifesto nor a morality play, AMO-TE Lisboa follows the Italian collective on their Portugal quest to assuage their own consciences and retain street cred virility – all the time being licked by fiery tongues of contempt of those who would have them clearly identify themselves and their allegiances.
We’re usually impressed by these guys’ bombastic and sarcastic tirades about the strictures of the Graffitti/Street Art/Urban Art/Contemporary Art dogmas – and their willful insistence on making their own path nevertheless.
This ranting, whining, bragging trio of road-trip roller romeos never let you down with their parodies of almost everything and everyone as they hit bold, ridiculous and cutty spots all around town and interact with people on the street – including many who weigh in to insult their work.
Wallflowers they are not.
A full-length movie like this helps Cane Morto secure their own uncomfortable place in these ongoing debates of artists/writers by mocking them to their face and making crude and poetic paintings – while crying hot righteous angry tears, then begging for forgiveness.
Pure drama! Pure feeling! And a grande mestolo of comedy ragu.
