Absurdist joke on an anarchically parodic escape from societal norms. As an 'escape' Thomas' transgressive seclusion reproduces what it aims to negate: gatherings, conversations, fantasies. Ending Platonically with the ascent from the Cave into Truth the film's critical edge proves self-undermining: no one notices the self-inflicted cannibalism, unless Thomas becomes 'one of us' or unless we become 'Thomas'.
A promising meditation and perspective on human relationships. There are a couple of interesting dialogues and meaningful scenes, but for the most part it's a combination of senseless nudity and quite pointless conversations while eating and drinking - perhaps this reflects our lives to some extent - true, but... I wish we could learn something about the main character, his past that led to his current lifestyle.
Sex, violence, gerontophilia, cannibalism, philosophy, arm-wrestling, and pasta-spitting. I mean, what's not to like? Warning: this unique "coming out" movie could produce irreversible mind-altering effects on the most impressionable viewers. The "over the shoulder" scene will hunt me forever.
