Strange, but wickedly entertaining
2 January 2005 | by bliz3See all my reviews

This is definitely one of the oddest movies I've ever seen, and I loved it! It's certainly not for everyone, but this movie definitely appealed to my rather dark sense of humor. And being gay, the cast was definitely easy on the eyes.

Anyway, I recommend this movie to anyone wanting to see something that is completely different from most everything else out there. But you need to have an open mind to enjoy it. Although the movie was pretty satirical, I also saw a little Fight Club angle to it as well.

On a side note, I have to say that I'm definitely interested in checking out other works by this director now.
