    Oh my god... the cinematic equivalent of scratch paper, or one of those bougie 'rage rooms.' Pure id... Fassbinder's Freddy Got Fingered.

    class struggle + slapstick / screwball comedy. this movie is so hilarious and insane. main guy is homer simpson but meaner and with no heart. very much like a cartoon in its simplicity, composition, dialogue & sound effects, gags, pace, and pitch. the dresser gag is so great. you have to see it.
