Bizarre and funny
1 October 2006 | by (Silver Lake, Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

The movie follows a young man who lives in a prop store; he is the one who goes to fetch every obscure prop that a film maker or theater worker could want. From the first minute, strange props are being requested and our protagonist knows exactly where each one is in the store. His employers are a crew of misfits and hangers on who don't seem to find any of it strange, even when a detective shows up to investigate the theft of odd props; the thought that a real policeman would waste his time looking for these worthless items is a laugh in itself.

In any case, the film is funny in that bizarre, otherworldly type of way. It's not the normal comedy, that's for sure. No one in the movie has a normal reaction to anything, and predictability is thrown out the window. You never know where this will go next, from talking dolls to fanboy detectives, strangeness is the word of the day.

It all hangs together, from one scene to the next, without losing it's basic deadpan portrayal. None of the characters see anything strange going on, and that's one of the most enjoyable parts of the movie.

If you like your comedy bizarre, this one's for you. Fans of Fargo, Svidd Neger, any of the Kaurismaki movies, or cult films like Repo Man will enjoy this.
