So I came out of this kind of hating it. And then I had a really great conversation with some really cool folks right outside the theater, and half an hour later I think I love it?
Although this plays like some unholy union of Lynch and Wiseau, there's lots to unpack here about the nature of exploitation vs. representation and creating opportunity for marginalized people--in this case folks with severe physical disabilities.
Some beautiful 16mm photography here, and lens choice is on point, as well. I also loved some of the sets, especially the red carpet room (basement?) and the final scenes taking place across two cross-sectioned apartments.
This film is not for everyone, obviously. Like I said, I came out of this sort of hating it. But give it some thought, and you might unearth the weird and challenging film that I did.
