Surprisingly moving and hilarious character portrait
8 September 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw this documentary in competition at the Sydney Underground Film Festival. While it's marketed as a rough and tumble action adventure....it turns out to be something else entirely.

In reality this is a damn funny yet kind of heartbreaking comedy about a man who takes eccentricity to an extreme. The focus of the film is mainly on his relationship with his family, and reveals a 'warts and all' portrait of a man who, for better or worse, has decided to live life a little TOO much on his own terms.

I'm glad I saw this with an audience, its gallery of social outcasts and misunderstood souls had the audience roaring in laughter. The film is possibly an acquired taste, and in a way it almost plays like a satire of how weird our culture has been able to become in the wake of social networking...

See it if you're a fan of character portraits.
