Kaiju

Two 250-foot-tall monsters debate the morality of the destruction they just caused. A group of human theatergoers argues after a play they just watched. Destruction becomes a means of conversation and conversation becomes a means of destruction in this satire of monster movies, the need to be validated, and post-show talkbacks.

    Starts with an image that takes an iconic monster movie elements and not just twists them, but makes them something wholly different. The gigantic characters discuss humanity from a perspective distant and removed, and they build to these funny, awkward, intimate moments I'd never imagine seeing in a kaiju story. The second act, meanwhile, contains just about everything I ever wanted to say about talkbacks, and by comparison made me yearn for the primal energy of the big stompy monsters over the human pretensions on display... and Caffrey does not disappoint.
