Captures our age of narcissism and stupidity
I saw this movie's premiere at the Toronto Film Festival. I loved it.
Bobcat Goldthwait has given us a hilarious comedy that perfectly
satirizes our self-centred, celebrity-obsessed, uncritical age.
Throughout the dark comedy Joel Murray delivers a perfect performance
as one of the last thinking men, who has grown weary of life and
society. In between the action and the comedy, Joel Murray's character
delivers scathing indictments of society that had the Toronto audience
break out into spontaneous applause. Besides being hilarious, this
movie is really an interesting exploration of the insensitivity and
thoughtlessness of modern popular culture. This movie is the antidote
our "reality show," celebrity-obsessed, know-nothing-and-proud-of-it
culture. The film's outlandish violence perfectly captures Horace
Walpole's epigram, "This world is a comedy to those that think, a
tragedy to those that feel." Unfortunately, as the movie points out,
few people are now capable of either thinking or feeling.
