Indifferent even to the prospects of inheriting his father’s estate, Swanson, a desensitized, aging Brooklyn hipster, strays into a series of reckless situations that may offer the promise of redemption or the threat of retribution.

Great film. It plays so well with the whole perfomance art/"anti-comedy" world of Tim Heidecker, its almost like you cant see line between Tim & Eric, Cinema on Cinema, the real life heidecker and Neil Hamburguer. It brings a whole history of a brand of humor and a group of people that may be beyond classification. If you like this movie watch the "follow-up" Entertainment
2nd watch review: Maybe the defining cultural movie of my generation. If 'Girls' is the show your parents watch and say, "Now I get you kids!," this movie is meant to be the antithesis of that shit. Brooklyn post 2005... We're shit. Bomb this place to hell.
1st watch review:this movie is about me :/
While I can't say I "enjoyed" watching this film, I did find it incredibly effective, accurate, and extremely disturbing. A portrait of a culture and of a kind of people that I absolutely despise and unmasking it for just how emotionally vapid it is. We live in a culture obsessed more with irony than true sincerity that is frightening to me. These people seem physically unable to connect on a basic human level.
