Saw this film as a submission to a festival for which I am a programmer. I wanted to write this quick review (of sorts) because I think this film was an absolute blast to watch, although unfortunately other programmers from my festival (festival shall remain nameless - I'd like to keep my job for next year) felt the film was far too controversial for a mainstream audience. I actually didn't agree at all. The film starts with words by the late Bill Hicks (a personal fave) and blasts off into a bizarre world of insanity. It's not a weird art film mind you, but there is an underlying sadness that makes all of the "edgy" stuff palatable. I guess I'm just writing this to let the world know that this film is out there and worth watching AT LEAST TWICE. It's a shame when good films get lost in other people's fear of a mirror. Yes - this film could be seen as EXTREMELY offensive, but you just have to look deeper than that. It's just a JOKE people! I'm a little wound up because we got out of our 'final stage' meeting and I had to listen to a bunch of people argue against this film citing it as 'too risky.' Hopefully other festivals have more cajones than the one I work for. I have to go on record as saying that it's NOT a cinematic masterpiece, but it didn't seem to be trying to be that. It's just a balls out hilarious film with a sweetness that we can all relate to -- and for that alone, it deserves all good things.
