DrFirestone's rating of the film Ecce bombo

The second part of "the triptych": this film seems to be more focused on the void of existence, looking for a purpose, ego(ism), loneliness, and (again) complex relationships with women. Apart from that, the film also relates to the media, politics, family interactions. Set in the 70s - a fascinating period of time, that gives the film a lot of interesting vibes, magnified by the cunning use of clever deadpan humour.
