    Get on this Criterion, I need to rewatch it several times

    This movie would be so much better if their second meeting wasn’t an attempted rape.

The rest of the movie is so good but these details just sour the whole thing.

    0/5 Todd Phillips can slurp diarrhea out of my ass but we’ll shoot it like Pasolini to convince people it’s in conversation with Saló
    This movie fails at everything it tries to do because it is immature ugly. It complains about a cruel and uncaring society yet repeatedly makes fun of a little person solely as a joke. Marc Maron, among the litany of great actors who appear in this movie for one or two scenes, knows that Todd Phillips has…
