A film that was overlooked and misunderstood. I saw this years ago at an independent feature film festival and it took some time for me to understand what was going on. This film was not a comedy per say, but an anti-comedy. It was a one huge inside joke. The actors weren't there to develop the characters but to seriously attempt to deliver lines that were intentionally absurd. They didn't have a clue what they were doing, and that was the point. Even the camera angles flattened them into 2-dimensional beings. The plot was a joke on traditional film-making, with over-the-top villains and a tidy wrap-up, set in a comic book urban environment. I Was A Teenage TV Terrorist was created by people who loved movies and television for the consistently failed attempt to portray real life and sincerity. It should be considered the cynics guide to contemporary culture.
