Saying Something Important: The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot

Kristin has humbly retired as Ordinary Times' friendly neighborhood political whipping girl to focus on culture and gender issues. She lives in a wildlife refuge in rural Washington state with too many children and way too many animals. There's also a blog which most people would very much disapprove of

  1. 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
