Rolf de Heer,
Bad Boy Bubby is just that: a bad boy. So bad, in fact, that his mother has kept him locked in their house for his entire thirty years, convincing him that the air outside is poisonous.

One of the most beautiful and yet thought provoking movies I've ever seen! Nick Hope is wonderful in this story about humanity and alienation - we can see a man uninfluenced by our norms and culture and realize how narrow-minded we actually are... The camera-work is perfect, the rest of the cast are so... real, yes, even if the subject matter is quite surreal it feels very true and, maybe more important, very HONEST. I have never seen anything like this movie and it sure is one of the best ones I've ever seen. I would love to get a chance to see any other of De Heer's movies. Bad criticism? Yeah, my terrible VHS-copy, someone PLEASE release this movie on DVD!!!
