perhaps the most underrated film of all time
Truly and earnestly heartfelt, deliciously surreal, and technologically speaking, eerily prescient. To say this was under-appreciated would be a vast understatement. A visual and conceptual joy.
a failed attempt for a surrealist dark humour drama family movie—or whatever it's meant to be. It's a crime for this line of cast (Robin Williams, Michael Gambon, Joan Cusack, Jamie Foxx!)
"kind of a David Lynch Babes in Toyland, kind of a National Blue Velvet" • Robin Williams
I remember this vividly as the ultimate "crickets" experience in a crowded theater-- jokes as flat as the prairie.
