Enjoy the resistance. Follow the leader. Huskies pulls language from our current political climate and from the imperative voice of water aerobics instruction. At times the film’s subjects enact a trance-like obedience to the film’s guide, performing the instruction with military coherence. At other times the subjects are passively disobedient like distracted animals at a training. The destination of this guided tour is clear and cold. The drama of humanity is memorialized by pool noodles.
