Incredibly funny trash/black humor film
11 January 2012 | by maxxsouthSee all my reviews

I am amused at other reviewers taking this film seriously and completely ignoring the fact that this is classic trash/black humor film. It is so trashy that it is funny as hell (Especially the Pacadena scene). The famous protagonist artist also makes wonderful job, and it is amazing that he was out-of-the-box enough to be engaged in this extraordinary (I mean, yes, literally) film. If you want/expect to see a horror movie, then do not watch it. If you want to see romantic comedy, then do not watch it. If you want to see philosophical, intellectual comedy, then do not watch it. This film is only trash black humor (though it has some elements of social satire. Not more, but not less.
