Most Realistic Boston Picture
9 July 2016 | by pelhamcSee all my reviews

Fat encapsulates what is unique about Boston, or at least Alston, a cool indie scene of its own. This is apart from the slew of Boston pictures out there depicting the big city of the New England states as a kind of New York outer borough with Kennedy accents.

Leading man Melvin Rodriguez is a fixture in the Boston music world, you may remember from The Pixies music video for Greens and Blues, or Marco, Jimmy's hometown partner-in-con on Better Call Saul. He's also a stand-up comic and possibly the fattest hipster ever to walk the earth. WARNING: This film contains graphic depictions of obese male nudity.

If that's your thing, stay for the jokes. The plot follows the misadventures of an obese man who self-medicates with food until his overeating threatens his tenuous health. This light-hearted comedy never takes itself too seriously. It features character development and independent Boston alt rock. It's a novel and original story, woven around the performance of Mr. Rodriguez. Sometimes it's better to cast comics than pure d actors because they look like real people and bring charisma. I liked it.
