Quotes

Buckwheat: I love women, they're hot, they make me sweat. I love chickens.I love their wings, like breasts. If you combine chicken with a woman's breasts, you get chicken breasts. I like chicken breast, chicken breast is nice and hot! If it was up to me, I'd make the world naked woman and naked chickens. That's hot, yeah!

Basking in glow of it.
20 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

Just got through watching this and had to comment on how wonderful it is. I am a big fan of Harmony Korine but if I hadn't known he had made this, I would have never guessed it was his film (I probably would have guessed John Sayles first).

So many amazing sequences in this film--the first Flying Nun sequence is unbelievable and I cannot get it out of my mind, brilliantly edited. The "Singing Egg" sequence almost had me crying and I don't normally get choked up. The stage show was also very poignant. And Werner Herzog's performance was pitch perfect.

I normally don't gush over movies, but Mister Lonely was so original, I need to gush. My one peccadillo? Not sure the title fits the movie.

(P.S. I hate critics and the ones on Rotten Tomatoes who called this a chore to sit through suck the most).
