Every year at TBA, there are a good number of events that sound pretentious, or goofy, or goofily pretentious. Luckily, every year at TBA there are also a good number of events that sound absolutely brilliant—and Flooding with Love for the Kid is one of them. The work of New York theater and film artist Zachary Oberzan, Flooding is a one-man adaptation of David Morrell’s 1972 novel First Blood—AKA “the book that inspired the first Rambo movie, a cinematic classic if there ever was one.” With a budget of $96 and a set consisting of one tiny studio apartment in Manhattan, Oberzan’s lo-fi reimagining of John J. Rambo’s brutal rampage through a tiny American town looks to be funny, inventive, fearless, and Rambo-tastic—in other words, a goofily badass reprieve from TBA’s more goofily pretentious offerings. I mean, c’mon, man! It’s fucking Rambo! EH
