He seems to be a genuinely sweet soul who keeps trying to draw her out. He cleans up her place, cooks for her and tries to introduce her to new things. Somehow she seems to enjoy the fact that there is another human being near her, but that's as far as it goes. He cannot get closer to her than her letting him wash her hair. No kissy, no touchie. She constantly yells at him and insults him. He hangs in there though and we're not certain why. What does he see in her? Does he see himself as being able to save her? Can she be saved and is she even worth saving?
What makes this work are the two leads and the odd story and dialogue they get to chew on. I kept wondering what happened to this girl in her past that she ended up like this. How is it she lives in this nice and nicely appointed apartment without having a job? It kept me going to the end which I found quite satisfying. There are some scenes that are very funny. Others are touching, while one scene with Tom Arnold is more than a bit scary.
If you like the odd indie films this is one for the books.
I do not feel the description is written well (over usage of claustrophobic - neither place is that bad) and the cover art/pics never happen in the film, but I gave it a fair shot since it is being advertised as a 2008 Sundance hit. Our story follows a homeless video store clerk as he stalks a porn-addicted agoraphobic cuckoo girl customer. SPOILERS; Tons of unbelievable events and un-described character issues fill the screen for 90 minutes, punctuated by two cameos (Tom Arnold as the offender dad [3rd perv role for him in as many films - scary]and Charles Durning as the old guy customer). His co-worker crew all have their little idiosyncratic nuances for the slight comic relief, with the story shifting between them and the love interest premise of a who-can-creep-out-the-potential-girlfriend/boyfriend-more-but-still-sleep-together motif.
The film quality is average as is the 5.1 (with a 2.0 option). The main supplement about being played at Sundance lasts over an hour, but since they went the un-narrated way/made at home feel I liked it. The gag reel option lasts 11 minutes and was actually funny only once or twice, should have been called a bad take reel.
A decent freshman attempt at making a totally obscure relationship film about creepy people, gave three for the film and one for the supplements. Just not sure if I can outright recommend this without adding some disclaimers; "innocent" on the cover art is furthest from the truth, "funny" is subjective on this, and the title is going for the shock value as it is never stated in the film. Enjoy.
