Trivia

One of the TV clips shown is a documentary on mass killer Charles Whitman who famously shot people at random from the University of Texas clock tower. Whitman left a note saying that he thought there was something wrong with his brain and asking for an autopsy to be performed on it after the police killed him. Unlike Frank it was determined he genuinely had a brain tumour and was not responsible for his actions. See more »

Frank: What?
Office Worker: Last night; that freak on "American Superstarz."
Frank: No... I mean yes, I saw that accidentally. I don't watch "American Superstarz"
Office Worker: You don't watch it, but you saw him. What are you too good for the show?

"No one has any shame anymore, and we're supposed to celebrate it."
18 April 2012 | by bluestemzSee all my reviews

Bobcat Goldthwait's latest feature as writer & director is a hilarious & articulately written black comedy commentary on contemporary American culture, or lack thereof. Yes, mass media's influence on the devolution of society has been tackled before (Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers & Euros Lyn's Fifteen Million Merits, for example) and the script has it's issues (which are plausibility/suspension of disbelief related IMO) but the dialogue does have monologues & diatribes that I think really do shine. The acting is FTW, and the whole small budget meets meaningful repartee feel of the piece threw me back to Mark Osbourne's 2000 film "Dropping Out". Most definitely catch it if you can! 8D
