Day Two!

First AGFA screening, this over-two-hours piece of "outsider cinema" is about a... homeless man? who... can't catch a bus? Honestly, I am not sure what this is about. The director stars in the film wearing crazy amounts of headphones and a pillow under his shirt to make himself look fatter. I guess the story is he used to be ok, just trying to sell watches on the street, but the evils of the world make him into a combustible ball of rage and over-eating? But there were protracted sequences of things like... dogs barking at him... and him running after buses as they drive away... and him vomiting on the street near an old nazi couple trying to watch television?

Toward the end, he goes to Universal Studios and films the whole ET ride. He also freely uses television clips, commercials, Spielberg movies... dubbing his own name over a clip of Tony Curtis talking about some classic film. There are enough touches in here to make me think the guy actually knew what he was doing, but the film is so rough and hard to take that it's kind of a mystery as to what's going on. It KIND OF feels like a crazy person made this movie.

So... that happened.
