    I'm a fan. I love the minimalism, the languid pace, the long takes, the pop psychology and 70's sex comedy holdover characters, the doomsayer, the iconic sound track etc, etc, etc...

    On a positive note, it does have a radio DJ who seems to be the perfect amalgamation of rick moranis and art bell.
