    Thanks for writing this review, Kristin. I’ll put it on my list….which means I might actually watch it eventually. [ETA: that probably sounded facetious. All I meant was, I have a lot of movies on my list to watch, and I watch only a fraction of them. But this one seems good.]

    I do think that many, many of us–myself especially included–are not nearly as immune to fascism as we/I would like to think. I’ve been pondering that truth about myself of late.Report

    I had this forever before I finally watched it. It was good. It’s not the action movie or absurdist movie the title suggests. You’re right to say that it’s a more serious movie. I enjoyed it quite a bit.Report

    I had seen TMWKHATTB a couple of years ago and enjoyed it, perhaps largely because it is such a different movie than the title suggests. Upon your suggestion, I watched it again and will say again — it is a much different film than the title suggests. A serious film that takes itself seriously and is well worth a viewing. I will quibble a bit on Bigfoot’s costume — I don’t think it looks that bad; quite serviceable in fact. Lots of moments and images in the film seem quite symbolic, but I have a notion that people will find their own interpretations of them. Elliot is quite good, particularly in the extended, close-up, intense monologue that explains a great deal about what is going on. He doesn’t get that many chances to play that hard and direct. So this another recommendation to give it a shot. Good film, check it out.Report
