User Reviews

an artistic, existentialist episode
26 September 2017 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

As most fans are well aware, Louie can go to some dark, dramatic places. After a very funny opening bit and some laugh out loud standup, this episode takes on a very somber, if darkly comical and strangely nostalgic tone. Tom Noonan appears as a very religious doctor who teaches Louis' younger self about Jesus Christ's suffering in an over the top and scarring way. The scene is an impressive feast of beautiful cinematography, disorienting editing, flawless acting, and pitch perfect tension. Even in its first, more comical season, Louis C.K.'s weird gem of a show was still filled with moments like these; unique and thrilling sequences that felt less like a more realistic episode of Seinfeld and more like an absurdist art house film. There are also some genuine and thought provoking questions borough up about belief and sin, and they are handled in a way that isn't trying to be "deep" or anything; instead, they're just handled really HONESTly, and this frank delivery of difficult issues is a large part of what makes this show as a whole so successful and brilliant in general.
