So this film was brought to my attention by a friend who claimed it was "like Hal Hartley on acid." I usually like to stay away from anything with a reference of being "on acid" but Hal Hartley would be a kick in that state, so I checked it out. She was right.
I've never laughed so hard at a movie, and yes, you're supposed to laugh. This film is basically an overdone spoof of indie New York films within the context of a Spanish soap opera. Throw in some of the most ridiculous dialogue and scenarios (all meant to be ridiculous mind you) and you've got The Golden Boat. Oh, and the soundtrack! John Zorn did the soundtrack and it's hilarious. There are scenes where the entire score pauses and restarts again (very funny.)
Follow Austin and Israel on their madcap adventure through New York City, trying to find Amelia Lopes. The cameos are great from Kathy Acker to Barbet Schroeder to Jim Jarmusch(the godfather of NY Indie film!)
If you watch this movie, watch it with friends who like to laugh. My only other advise is don't try to figure it out. It'll ruin the fun.

post-modern vision of the surrealist commentary. a deliniation of pre-byzantine cutlery mixed with class struggle/psychotic view of the protestant work ethic.

I have a feeling the guy above didn't see it either, he just bought a new Thesaurus and wanted to try it out. NO ONE tlaks like that in modern day American, not if he's on-line.
