    Occasionally hilarious and consistently funny this whilst a lesser entry in Guest's mockumentary oeuvre is nonetheless a lighthearted and thoroughly entertaining piece.

    Another fantastic effort from Benson and Moorhead. Mind melting yet emotionally powerful the film also operates as a meta meditation on the nature of stories and audiences. Bolstered by excellent performances and assured direction these guys are the real deal and have so far hit 3 out of the park.

    In many ways Blue Velvet is the gateway film for me. It is absolutely the film that showed me the light and made me realise that there was a world out there that was a million miles away from the mainstream American cinema that I had previously been exposed to.

    ★★★★½

    An astonishing film that absolutely pulled the rug out from under me on first viewing. Another film that seems to have disappeared with very little fanfare or press on it’s initial release. Gael Garcia Bernal is incredibly unsettling in this harrowing tale of a young man’s mission to connect with the father he never met (William Hurt also superb). Without giving too much away the final act of this film is devastating.
