The Corndog Man is a highly original tale of one man's tulmultuous downfall because he can't stop answering the telephone. A good movie, with some witty, but repetitive dialogue and scenes. I just can't figure out what the symbolism of the corndog represented. Good for a low budget flick, but I still would have liked to see some other supporting characters developed more in this movie. Personally, it gets a little boring to watch a whole movie focusing on only one character, especially one who happens to be an ignoramus.

Definitely be prepared to suspend your disbelief when watching this one because of the all-knowing mystery man. The overall focus and scope of the movie was too narrow and repetitive to be really compelling and dramatic. Still, the movie was disturbing, edgy, and unique and the scenes were well illustrated by the director. Definitely worth seeing- but only once. 7/10
