This is a movie that has been on my list for a long time. Somewhat a classic in some circles and a film I’d actually never heard too much about. I think essentially the whole movie is about the imminent explosions that occur when people attempt to be too closed off, stoic and content according to some film maker. It’s a series of mid life crises blown way out of proportion and taken to logical conclusions in a handful of relationships between some of the most interesting characters I’ve ever seen. There are some stock characteristics like the shrill mother, angsty teen and breaking-point cubicle worker, but as you watch the fun if the movie is watching the actors gleefully destroy these images. The whole thing turns on a sexual pivot that is necessarily uncomfortable, but don’t let that get you down; it’s part of the show. Awesome talent, great music, unexpected and satisfying plot. Definitely recommend.
