When you watch this movie you are suppose to see the effects of schizophrenia on family life. YOU AREN'T SUPPOSED TO FEEL SCHIZOPHRENIC!!!!! My God, I didn't think anything could be worst than Gummo, but I was wrong. At least Gummo was funny, stupid and lame as all hell, but funny. The coolest part in this was the black albino rapping. Watching this movie I wanted to kill myself. Put a bomb in my mouth and sing "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood" until it explodes. I also know some hip indie movie reviewer on Amazon will give my review of this movie a poor rating, "Because I am missing the vision of the director's notion of schizophrenia". You want a notion of schizophrenia? Look it up in the DSM.

Flashing a giant mouthful of fake gold teeth that he received as a present, Julien (an almost indescribable Ewen Bremner, better known as "Spud" from Trainspotting) aimlessly and shamelessly wanders the depressing streets of his hometown of Queens in his own little schizophrenic world of make-believe, childish song, and unanswered questions. See and REALLY EXPERIENCE Julien taking a bath, all the while singing and mumbling uncoherently to himself, watch him go to work in Queens as an aide for blind …

It is rather brisk in this field. The leaves are descending like a tapestry of aloof dreams. The wind entices these leaves into a plume of whimsical billowing ontological paradox. Then I recall that I … more
