After the credits, Richard Roeper gives his review of the film. See more »
There are few masterpieces in the world. The vision of Richard Christy in this film is one of them. Supertwink is an experiment in the sublime. Establishing Mr. Christy as one of the pre-eminent new film directors, Supertwink is an expression of genius. Clearly, the impact of such a film was seen by his benefactor, Mr. Stern, as a competitive threat and he held back financial support.
One can only hope that some altruistic philanthropist will find Mr. Christy and give him the funds that can make the next Citizen Cane.
Oh, Mr. Christy, would that I could contribute. But I sense your sloth would only waste my money.....
