I've never seen anything like "Pumpkin," and I doubt I ever will. It is a movie so multi-layered and so sophisticated in its apparent and deceiving simplicity that it's likely to go over the head of moviegoers used to the same old simplistic commercial fodder. I can tell you three things about this film: 1. The closer you look and analyse it, the funnier and more meaningful it becomes 2. It's impossible to pidgeonhole or put in a box and that's all critics do these days and so it is probably one of the most underrated films in a long time 3. Appreciation and a following for this film will grow through the years as people see it as a daring and provocative piece of art and not a missfired attempt at satire. I've seen Pumpkin three times and I'm betting that this film will become a classic and will reappear at your local retro theater in years to come.
