I saw this film at a festival in Florida and must say that I was pleasantly surprised. I attend festivals every year, and most films I see aren't worth the view.
I should first say that this isn't a straight comedy. Dark is definitely the right word to use, but the film also has a dramatic side that is very effective.
A couple scenes were a bit long, but overall I really enjoyed the film. It has cult movie written all over it, and I'm sure it'll be released soon.
Easily Edward Furlong's best performance in many years, and Gary Busey was hilarious as well.
One of the best things though was the writing. The film is very obviously supposed to be "out there" so if you're looking for unbridled realism, stick to documentaries. It's crude, over the top, loud, and unafraid to poke fun at several social issues.
I overheard one or two people walking out of the theater talking about how offensive it was. Honestly, this movie SHOULD offend some people. It's supposed to, and it looks like it worked.
The crowd gave a great reaction as well. I'd recommend the film to anyone who isn't afraid to make fun of themselves and doesn't take life too seriously. If you're overly religious or can't handle explicit language, you probably should skip it.
