Funny how?
3 July 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Theatre, comedy club and movie combined? Does that work? Does it make sense? Well one would argue that it can work. The comedic part has quite a lot of ... innuendos. Although they are not even really hidden, he plain talks about sexual situations. In Germany this was rated 12, which may feel weird to some people (especially American censors I reckon), but you have been warned now (if that is something you need to be warned about).

Overall it is decent, but it is not a great movie (imho). Depending on your affection for the story or attachment to the actor you may feel differently. Maybe even the provocations are what you like. Something obviously that bring notoriety ... and hate from some. It is critical and I applaud it for that (or at least I think it is) ... either way, a difficult movie mixture to watch
