Buddy Solitaire is a struggling comedian on the late night circuit. The only job he can get is teaching comedy to the mentally ill. Buddy discovers, however, that by helping these patients, he can get closer and closer to healing himself.
Refreshing. stimulating, thought provoking, enjoyable, and different! Pleasure to watch!
This movie does have plenty to say.. and it's clever enough to give you the space to think about it - instead of the usual bludgeoning into submission and acceptance!
It's minimalist for sure - a rare (and worthy) beast in the current cinema-scape of sensory bombardment that we have been instructed to become used to..
Credit to the entire team here for making simplicity cool, enjoyable and refreshing, as well as thought provoking and a pleasure to watch.
A most watchable interplay of performances, music, cinematography and script; this undemanding movie still stimulates - and gives you the space to consider the themes it explores - and there are more than a few, and nicely interweaved; conditioning, programming, the mother, AI, (very clever here) relationships, love, self and other, now.. and zen.. and it doesn't need to resort complexity to do all this.. the sheer simplicity works just fine ;>
Oh, and the soundtrack's yummy!
