Bad Boy Bubby is just that: a bad boy. So bad, in fact, that his mother has kept him locked in their house for his entire thirty years, convincing him that the air outside is poisonous. After a visit from his estranged father, circumstances force Bubby into the waiting world, a place which is just as unusual to him as he is to the world. Written by

I think Angel is beautiful.
She's a fat slut.
Watch what you say, dear.
Better be known that she's a fat slut.
If God had wanted us to be fat, he'd just made us all the same way, wouldn't he? But he didn't! God doesn't like fat people! Fat people are an abomination in his eyes!

One of the most beautiful and yet thought provoking movies I've ever seen! Nick Hope is wonderful in this story about humanity and alienation - we can see a man uninfluenced by our norms and culture and realize how narrow-minded we actually are... The camera-work is perfect, the rest of the cast are so... real, yes, even if the subject matter is quite surreal it feels very true and, maybe more important, very HONEST. I have never seen anything like this movie and it sure is one of the best ones I've ever seen. I would love to get a chance to see any other of De Heer's movies. Bad criticism? Yeah, my terrible VHS-copy, someone PLEASE release this movie on DVD!!!
