We see many different candle scents these days from prosecco to all kinds of seasonal efforts such as gingerbread and pumpkin spice. The question is, has there ever been a human scented one?
In Jordan Wong’s Mountain Lodge, the filmmaker, through the guise of a search engine, tries to point potential shoppers towards the bargain bin area of men-scented candles in the local Yankee Candle store.
Whether this section exists is open to debate, but would it surprise us really?
While this is quite a frantic watch, it is certainly innovative and entertaining filmmaking, like some sort of social media-induced fever dream.
It will make you smile and certainly marvel at its craft. Whether it will have you craving a Mountain Lodge candle anytime soon is open to debate.
Mountain Lodge screened as part of the Soho Horror Film Festival: Pride Edition 2022.
