endearing
18 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I liked this a lot. I've looked at other reviewers' comments on site and agree with most. I can't agree with comments like, 'worst movie ever made' but somehow can take both, 'hilarious' and 'not funny'. Certainly I didn't sit laughing, indeed can't think of anything I found particularly funny, but it was amusing and more importantly, endearing. I think that as with some of the 70s Warhol product, particularly, Women in Revolt, I am attracted and absorbed not because of any narrative or genre attraction but simply by the utterly convincing way the parts are grabbed by the scruff of the neck and enjoyed by those we are watching on screen. So, yes it is virtually plot-less and not hilarious but still most watchable. Even if I can't properly explain why, I would happily sit down and watch it again any time. Weird eh? Me and the film then, I reckon.
