    If you ogle women in the grocery store that makes you a pervert, but if you ogle women in the grocery store and have an ethos that makes you an artist apparently.

    ★★

    There were some very good points and interesting questions in this movie, my main problem was that almost none of it was backed up by hard evidence. This is just a bunch of people making bombastic statements to in order to shock people. I’m not saying most of this isn’t true, I’m just saying that it isn’t done very professionally and is very hard to take seriously. Also a lot of the cutaways were sensationalistic, unnecessary and cringe inducing.

    The premise of this movie is pretty played out, so I was kind of worried that this would be far more conventional than most of it ended up being. The first thirty minutes were excellent and thrust me into the bizarre but still based in reality world where this could happen. After that It slowly started to lose my interest little by little, until the main plot line starts to really take off. After that point the movie started to…

    This could have been to this decade what The Social Network was for the 2010s had it just been a bit more in depth. A great idea for a documentary, the story of Pepe is oddly beautiful especially when paired with the story of the artist Matt Furie. The story of Pepe is satisfyingly memetic and universal naturally fitting into many of the archetypes that humans have created to tell fictions. Pepe was born from a place of truth and…

    ★½

    I really enjoy a well done atmospheric slow burn movie. Unfortunately this was not very well done. To make a slow movie work you need to make the viewer think during the lulls, give them information to contemplate rather than just passively watch. If a movie can’t do that it has to have at the very least captivating cinematography. This film had neither and ended up just being boring 20 minute segments interrupted by out of nowhere disturbing but still largely uninteresting gore. This felt like a mediocre student film that relied to heavily on shock value.

    ★★★★

    One of the freshest movie experiences I have had recently. This film had a completely different feeling from modern American movies; it didn’t take itself to seriously, yet was far more well made than movies that take themselves way more seriously. The directing style was very the the point while also masterfully creating mood, very reminiscent of Almodóvar. This movie isn’t either  as funny or scary as you are expecting but it is probably a better movie overall.

    Funny movie, but the premise was so promising and had so much wasted potential.

    It’s so weird to see Spenny acting like a normal human. It’s so less entertaining than Kenny vs. Spenny but this documentary was still interesting and pretty funny.

    I’m gonna need to watch this 8678395 more times before I can give this a real review, and probably a 5 star one. I won’t claim to completely understand this movie, but what I did was brilliant. Kauffman’s stream of thought directing style was amazing, and it’s so uncanny how this film mirrors his own life, and particularly artistic work. It’s almost as if this film is Kauffman’s “New York in a Wearhouse”

    Kenny Hotz as always is hilarious, but this was kind of boring, and not much happened. The ending was also underwhelming.

    ★★

    Mostly bland biopic that in moments tried to be super quirky and "not like the other biopics". The dialogue was written in a way reminiscent of a museum tour and each actors diction definitely did not help with this. Especially the lead actress, she seemed like she was playing her character for an eighth grade school project instead of a professional movie.

    I usually love Sergio Leone movies but A Fistfull of Dollars is straight up blasphemous against this fantastic film.
