Without a purpose, there's not much to do except dawdle through town. Sticking your middle finger up to job centres but stalking sex. Spying on girls through the lens of binoculars with a growing sex drive that's big enough to destroy the world.
What's the first thing you masturbated to?
Sticky curiosity sends him on a wild adventure, but is it so wild for him? Who knows? It's a cartoonish set of events which starts with a "dog killer" lurking the streets, and leads to...well, uh, lots more.
PAY THE DAMN RENT!
The perfectly casted Andrew Garfield absolutely kills this role, and he does a lot in this movie. Punches kids in the face, runs around naked (a lot), you name it and I bet he does it!
Alongside Kurt Cobain and a picture of a literal girl next door, he embarks on a quest through magic mushrooms, an iconic balloon girl and many suicidal thoughts.
I personally loved this movie. I had an unbeliveable amount of fun and them 140 minutes flew by! The cinematography and score are so unique, and really make for a great combination in a film which tip-toes between different genres and definitely reinvents something.
This movie smells like teen spirit, and it reeks! I suppose there are a lot of skunks around here though.
