Storyline

ORGIES AND THE MEANING OF LIFE is an eccentric and exciting film illuminating the inner and outer life of Baxter Goode, a man trying to find an ending to his book (about a sex obsessed stick figure searching for a portal to the three dimensional world) even as his father, a best selling Christian author, tries to stop him. His life is further complicated by his search for the 'one', a woman he is sure will liberate him from his long addiction to orgy fantasies. Both of these pursuits are somehow connected to God, who may or may not be a stick figure, and Baxter's lesbian roommate, who may or may not be imaginary. Employing live action, animation, and experimental story techniques to explore existential, professional, and sexual crisis, ORGIES AND THE MEANING OF LIFE promises to be one of the more unique movie going experiences you will ever have.

Could've been a cult classic.
21 December 2008 | by cgo72123See all my reviews

Transgressive fiction; though unclear and incomplete. The idea was there, and so were the quotes. Gottfred should have just done the writing for the movie, and left the direction, production, and acting to one more adept. It's a real pity this is not a novel, as I always resort to novels when I'm unfulfilled by the movie (such as Choke). Poor acting and lack of communication with the viewer make the film a six by my standard. I dedicate myself to this type of movies, and the fact that I did not really get some of the things Gottfred intended to do suggests that the average viewer will have a much lesser chance. Yet, at end, I am glad I took the time to see the movie, many can get something out of it.
