Dark comedy drama. Also a gross out and sex comedy but instead of cheap physical jokes (ok one at the end) and loud characters it has a quiet vulnerability and painful tender moments. This quiet and dramatic acting along with dialogue that's directly painful but worded simplistically and sometimes silly gives a funny effect. Obviously the subject matter isn't funny itself but the delivery is. When the jokes over it's instantly back to thinking of what happened and how screwed up these people are. It's a gripping cycle. I like the effort this movie makes to be different in its comedy style yet didn't go they way of sacrificing realism. The themes are pretty taboo. It definitely goes into bizarre territory.

This movie was a real gem. From the long view it is a dark, dark (and I mean DARK) comedy masquerading as a drama. In reality it is a motley collection of characters that appear to be really "out there" but in reality might be closer to people we know than we think. The film had quite a few laughs and towards the end there might be the funniest four words ever uttered in a movie that I've reviewed. I absolutely howled, not necessarily because of the words (they are disturbing) but because of the timing.

Simply too hard to watch due to the subject matter.

But... it is clearly an excellent film, I just can't recommend anyone watch it. Enter at your own risk.
