LA Weekly says: So thoroughly conceived that it demands appreciation if not quite love, Kuso offers gross-out Afro-future horror for the dank-memes generation.

Shudder isn't available in my country, but I am going to try and watch it after reading that.

Afro-future horror

I'm glad this was called out in this particular way. My viewing very much left me with the impression that this is a film with a lot of complex things to say (or question) about black identity (I'm still sussing out what precisely those things are). I think it's a riveting and well-made film, and maybe even as important, in its own way, as Get Out is for African-American filmmaking in 2017; I definitely need to watch again.
