I saw this film about three years ago in a traveling film festival, and ever since it has resided on my proverbial top ten list of great films, along with such masterpieces as Fellini's 8 1/2, Kurosawa's Dreams, Nic Roeg's Walkabout, and Truffaut's 400 Blows. As with those much-celebrated films, this film possesses a quality that is the rarest in cinema; strong unique auteurism. Though it may not be the most entertaining of films, and it may be a little technically rough around the edges, it offers something that any and all viewers who see it should cherish... a privileged glimpse into someone else's truth, via the cinematic medium. I've wondered what would become of the filmmaker's career, fearing that he would be punished with obscurity for opting to make a film with much more integrity than entertainment value. But hopefully due to the success of his newest film, American Movie, I'll have the opportunity to see more works by a (so far) great filmmaker.
ps. Even though I've mentioned a lack of entertainment value in this film, it's still very witty and funny, and I would highly recommend it to anyone... even those of you who like cinematic dog-poo such as Titanic.
