Azazel Jacobs United States, 2008

I.Camera's rating of the film Momma's Man

A New York City oddity, with a man in early middle age unable to leave the comfort of his parents' bohemian curio of an apartment, or his memories of a lost adolescence. Reminded me of Bunuel's Exterminating Angel, esp. when the pudgy lead, Mikey, is unable even to descend the stairs of his parent's house. The parents are played by director Jacob's own parents and seem fascinating enough to warrant their own doc.
