Visible Bruckman’s review published on Letterboxd:
on 35mm at Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor with Nikki
This movie just works you into a perfect lather. Richard Edson is so fucking funny as Eddy in this, perfectly delivering as the dumb puppy sidekick.
Its crazy to watch a movie like this that just feels completely timeless, despite it not being a period piece and having been made in the mid-80s.
Seeing this on film was also fucking awesome. The heavy grain and degraded film itself just added to the out-of-time feeling of the movie.
Also a great damn mumblecore buddy movie. Such an easy, smooth watch, especially in a packed theatre with an engaged audience. This is a movie that makes me realize everything you could have thought of has been done to almost perfection before.
