i don't really know what differentiates ryan trecartin's style from like, LOL SO RANDUM youtube humor, other than its sheer excessiveness and insanity, but i love it. maybe part of why i love it is because of the artificial or perhaps nonexistent distinction between it and that exact kind of "lowbrow" media.
I'm still in utter shock at what I have just witnessed. If it's not one of the most original films ever made, I will put a sock in my mouth. Not since Věra Chytilová's DAISIES has a film been of such insanity and equal satire without becoming pretentious in its ridiculousness. Can't wait to explore more of Trecartin's work. Holy fuck.
Once you're able to get on the movie's wavelength, its anarchic charms become pretty intoxicating. All thoughts of "what the fuck is this" are lost to sheer wonder and amazement by the time the balls-out crazy party starts. A fun and fascinating film if ever there was one.
