Austrian film history knows nothing quite like the trilogy Slugs, Contact High, and Hotel Rock’n’Roll, which (successfully!) aims to translate the pop culture trinity of sex, drugs & rock’n’roll into cinematographic terms. These brainchilds of late director Michael Glawogger and writer-actor Michael Ostrowski give a unique spin on Austrian comedy, and the second part, in particular, is unsurpassed in its psychedelic joy. Cinema as hallucinogenic drug.
