Thomas Haden Church,
The first time I tried to watch this film my friends were being freaked out by it and didn't understand it. They made me stop it. Once I got another chance I put it in my DVD player and watched all twenty-six minutes of it. I was in awe. Even though the film is said to have no explanation I understood it. That's pretty funny. There is no sense of traditional storytelling here. The first track on the c.d. plays in a loop as marilyn manson says several different things over and over again in voice over. There is no pattern to it. Listen to the things he says. Some are funny and others are thought provoking. At least one helps explain the plot I saw. "I'm not really tall dark and handsome" was the line. Also everything that is not him sitting in his chair is a flashback and what he puts on his face is an adhesive used in stage makeup called liquid latex. Figure out the rest for yourself or come up with an entirely different interpretation. I would like to see Marilyn do another film. After this one (even though it was more than enough) I crave more! I guess I'll just have to wait until his next c.d.
