430th Review: Utterly bizarrely ordinary and surreal - so off the wall it's wallpaperly delicious
12 June 2011 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

You will know within 2 minutes of watching this if you can watch all of it or not - it is anti-Hollywood, just about anti-indie, a brilliant take on boredom, eccentricity, makes unoriginality into hyper-originality and is generally like a 1930s freak show with a side order of banal.

Seriously weird, and yet oddly familiar, the psychodramas and models of parenting and the wakwardness of friendships are all twisted in a maelstrom of ideas that just keep on coming. Every character is explored not for character but for something odd, find the oddness, in the face, the mannerisms etc; and its in their eccentricities that you find the story.

However, behind all of the strangeness, there is consummate skill: the actors are all just on the line between satire and buffoonery and it all works brilliantly. This is a truly strange, odd, little film with Sci-Fi roots and strange strange buds.

All I can say is plunge in - it is one of the stranger films out there

  • yet it has heart and humor, and many will recognize the nerdcore COS


world it inhabits all too well - if off the wall is your cup of tea you can rest assured you have found the right stop...weirdly brilliant....
