I think this film has been judged unfairly as you either 'get' Vegas or don't. He mines the fringe areas of comedy, like danger and confrontation, to produce challenging and at times unsettling pieces which often have the power to stimulate long after viewing. I believe him to be so successful at what he does (although others have no doubt hit upon this idea earlier) that the he will one day be credited with it's inception(Incidentally I don't pay that much attention to stand up so I'm not a good judge, but big 'Up' to J.V. all the same:-). I believe also that Vegas has a real message in his work, he's reaching the point where he'll be able to make it accessible to everyone. 18 stone of idiot came very close. I'm not being guarded in not telling you the inferences he would appear to be making I simply have a feeling for this but can't put it into words (as this would miss the point somewhat). He is without doubt the genius, history will prove my words true.
