Capsule Review: Branded (2012)

Branded poster

Infamous Russian b-film with a winning concept about marketing brands being actual demons that feed off of the desires of human beings is often criticized for being overly long and basically tone-deaf, mostly because it seems like the writer/producer/director team of Jamie Bradshaw and Aleksandr Dulerayn just went with every idea they had, pacing, character, or believability be damned. Sadly once the brand demons start fighting over Moscow and the main character starts screaming about “Advertising was started by LENIN!” you get an inclination to the bizarre-ass adventure the movie could have been.
