Amazing Movie
14 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

"'Existo' crashes and burns with its trite political humor that completely fails at even garnering the slightest of smirks."

We'll have to chalk that comment up to different senses of humor, because everyone I saw this with and I more than slightly smirked. This movie is hilarious.

"They just wanted to make a quirky, original film and weren't sure if anyone would like it. But Coke Sams is actually trying to intentionally make a cult classic here."

If that's the case, then he did one hell of a good job. It's a quirky, original, great film.

"The film opens with a voice-over that tells of a dystopian, ultra-conservative future. Yeah, really subtle."

I agree with you on this point. If you get to see the original version of the film, give that a shot--it opens with a musical number and goes right into the story. Much better opening than the voice-over.

"Arnston does all sorts of Zaney things that you'd see on one of those live-action children's shows on PBS"

Whoa, they have people singing while bouncing on penis-pogo-sticks on PBS?

"This film was made in Nashville, and you'll note that almost all of the positive user comments are from anonymous users from Tennessee, most likely friends of Sams or even members of the crew who produced this abomination, perhaps even Sams himself."

I'm from nowhere near Tennessee and didn't even know Coke Sams' name before seeing this. It's just a great movie. Art is subjective. Humor is subjective. Don't skip out on this movie because one reviewer hated it. It's brilliant.
