Baal is a young amoral rebellious poetic genius who, after a short and eventful life of debauchery, betrayal and violence, is about to cut his ties to the world and meet his doom. A high society party is where the end begins.
I found this film to be humorous to watch with moments that made me smile. It wasn't laugh out loud material but I loved watching the performances. All the actors involved did a great job of bringing to life their blend of neurotic, paranoid and quirky characters. Rosanna Arquette played a delightful if slightly annoying vague waitress/escape artist who is very funny to watch. Her friend played by Eszter Balint was also wonderful as she played a kind of morose and sarcastic side kick with some very funny lines. Of course David Bowie plays the male lead and he is very good in this. I think he's quite underrated as an actor and he should do more comedy. He delivered his lines very well and was genuinely cute with his humour. I actually think this is one of his best performances and it's a shame the film didn't do well for him. All in all the story was fun to follow but it's the performances that made for a delightful if not light comedy.
