Hilarious. I'll be the first to admit that Brook's humor isn't for everyone. I've watched DYL with several people who simply didn't get it. But if you're one of the lucky ones who do, you're in for a treat. The attention to detail in the movie is mindboggling. There's so many little humorious things happening in the background of the movie alone that makes it worth seeing (eg. the car dealership in the film's beginning, the tram ride with all the pedestrians in their white tupas in the background). Brooks plays the character of the average man so well in most all of his films. This film is no exception. I hope the negative reviews he recieved for Mother won't stop him from making more of what he makes best--funny, thought provoking movies. Oh, and kudos to Rip Torn!
