Moneybag Head takes an absurdist premise and mines it for comedic gold and lingering questions — like “Can love prevail in relationships that are also utilitarian?” Or “Must one consent to be a muse?” This bizarre film takes itself seriously in all the right ways, making the palpable chemistry between Chris Grace and Cathryn Mudon hilarious and heartwarming. Crazy memorable, this film will be living rent free in my brain for a longgggg time. — Erin Brown Thomas, Artistic Director
