It's not often that the very plotline for a film will leave me speechless and unable to unleash my special brand of snark on it. Most films, even the patently ridiculous, will have some sort of in that will allow for riffing on. Every now and then, however, a film will come along that can only be presented without comment. Well, maybe a small comment - a tiny bit of reassurance that this is real.

I present to you BURNING BRIGHT. From director Carlos Brooks, the film has the most unspeakably nonsensical and glorious plot I have heard in years (and this from a girl who watched THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE two nights ago). The film follows "a 20-year-old and her autistic little brother who are trapped in a house with a ravenous tiger during a hurricane." This is an actual storyline. This is an actual film. All of these elements are real. If anything, this film should give hope to struggling screenwriters everywhere. Literally, anything can get made these days. Do you not believe the logline I've laid out for you? Oh, hit the jump, observe the trailer, and believe.[youtube][/youtube]
