It's nice to see where he started, despite the amateurishness. I kept thinking about that quote from Lebowski. "Nihilists! Fuck me. I mean, say what you want about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos."
Worth a watch, but nothing hugely special. The characters and plot weren't that engaging and the dialogue was best when the characters were just chatting casually, worsening in some of the more serious moments. It was ok, though.
What a great movie. May seem tacky now, but is a sincere and thourough revision of post 80's aids-angst gay/pop/art driven life. Great references (that Details mag on the top corner -sigh!), an awesome soundtrack + THAT final dedication to the white house... niiiice!
