A phenomenal Australian film with one incredible sequence, shot, character, etc. after another plus, Donald Pleasance showing up as an alcoholic outback doctor. Considered by many to be the best film to come from Down Under. A true masterpiece of unknown filmmaking.
The story of Bob Flanagan, the man who holds the medical record for living the longest with cystic fibrosis, 43, who also happens to be a masochistic performance artist. Ebert called it one of the most agonizing films he's ever seen and it turns out to be my favorite documentary of all time.
This is what Catch Me If You Can would have looked like if Leonardo Dicaprio's character was a sociopath. Alec Baldwin is cruel and hilarious. Jennifer Jason Leigh is naive and amazing. And Fred MOTHERFUCKING Ward is well, the grooviest man to ever step foot on Earth. Tippy top notch black comedy.
Absurd n' ambitious violence, buckets of grit, and a truly WTF DID I REALLY JUST SEE THAT? type ending. James Glickenhaus violence is some of the funnest type of violence out there. Sam Elliot tells a great story to Peter Weller about a dog while sitting at a bar too. That's all I'm saying.
"Twenty-four contestants compete in an endurance/sleep deprivation contest in order to win a brand new Nissan Hardbody truck. The last person to remain standing with his or her hand on the truck wins. An absurd marketing gimmick at first glance, the contest proves to be much more."
John Waters didn't direct this but you'd probably swear in court that he did. Bill Paxton, Judd Nelson and Wayne fucking Newton compromise the main cast, yeah I know, what the shit!? James Caan cameo is one for the wtf ages.
Holy crap balls this flick is fucking trashy. It's about a full grown man who is still treated like a newborn baby. Might make you feel all weird n' tingly in a very icky way while watching. Makes for a good double feature with Girly.
Stylized Argento influenced visuals, eclectic soundtrack, sick n' creative murder scenes, beautiful shots of the Arizona landscape, bizarre score by ex-Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, and bad ass David Keith.
Overall, a full blown mess of insanity.
Not every flick here is a top to bottom masterpiece (well some are dammit) but I will guarantee you that every flick is filled with an OH SHIT moment or two or strives for something big n' bold n' ballsy or will be branded into your brain until the very day you die. Or just all 3. Enjoy ya rat basta'ds!
