Harold is faced with the daunting task of picking up his date for the high school dance. Amidst the rubble and decay of modern American suburbia, Harold must do his best to make a good first impression on the eccentric Mr. Darling against a series of somewhat unforeseen events. Care for something to drink Harold? Written by
I had the extreme pleasure of seeing Darling Darling for the second time at the 2005 Palm Springs Film Festival, and let me tell you, the absolute absurdity of Darling Darling had me nearly on the floor from laughing so hard. I haven't seen absurdity this funny since Monty Python's "The Meaning of Life", although that description won't prepare you for what happens in this film. It also contains one of the most original and hilarious guitar solos ever put to celluloid. Period. Michael Cera's straight performance had me sold the whole time, and Mr. Darling is priceless. I certainly hope to see more from Matthew in the future. A great and truly unique short all around!
