The Strangest Movie No One Ever Saw
13 July 2006 | by darkangyll8See all my reviews

I ran into this movie at 4am on one of my favorite cable networks. At first I wondered if I were imagining it's oddness due to sleep deprivation. After end credits rolled I still wondered. This is a wonderful movie for all lovers of beatnik poetry. In fact the film contains snippets of its own morose poem attempting to size up the situation. For what should be a comedy the film constantly makes you question why you're laughing. The plot begins with the story of a bored rich couple. While the husband is off in his own world slowly meeting insanity the wife finds her own fun. This would be in the form of seducing their house boy. Many unexpected things occur between the two of them all the while you wonder are any of them sane? The performance by B.D. Wong in this one as "Billy" (the house boy) is worth watching alone.
