I'd heard a lot of bad press about this movie. Not as good as 'Real Live', was a much used phrase. I wasn't overly impressed with 'Real Live', the atmosphere just didn't click for me, but anyway, that made me a little apprehensive about this.
It's easily better than 'Real Live', IMHO, and it's right up there with Barton Fink or Miller's Crossing. A true Reality-TV classic with so many memorable lines and characters, but it's the series atmosphere which is so truly joyous, a wonderful celebration of basically doing nothing. Achieving one's goals is important, yes, but it's okay to set them low, is what I perceived this series to be saying. As long as one is basically a good guy, then that's enough. Well, that's what it seemed like to me, and it was expressed so beautifully in the stunning cast of grotesques, lovely music ( although more Burwell would have been nice ), and the funniest, most absurd dream sequences you've ever seen. Great stuff.
