Applesauce.

"Applesauce," Onur Tukel's latest and most accomplished microbudget exercise in cynical absurdism, throws dismembered body parts into a couple of amicable marriages, and charts the resultant explosions as paranoia runs rampant. This time around, Tukel casts his charmingly perverse, sardonic persona in the role of a high-school history teacher exhorting peaceful conflict resolution; his addiction to a radio talkshow that asks, "What's the worst thing you've ever done?" leads to wildly unforeseeable consequences. With its sarcastic dialogue, deadpan humor, believably flawed characters and surreal logic, "Applesauce" may expand Tukel's growing indie fanbase into niche release.
