Not great, but it has its moments
23 March 2015 | by vchimpanzeeSee all my reviews

Stan returns home and his co-worker and roommate Christian wants to know why Stan changed his shirt. We later learn the shirt was blue. Something blue was in the trash at that gas station and the camera spent a lot of time showing us that trash container.

Stan's friend Billy has broken up with Alice, who is still in college in Ohio, and returns home to this parents outside D.C.

Stan and Billy spend a lot of time together and it's not clear half the time what they are talking about since half the words had to be bleeped for broadcast TV. But there is a pretty and sarcastic girl who insulted them in the bar where they were drinking. Not a good idea! Billy talks to Alice a lot but she's not really there.

Stan had his own bad breakup, with pretty Ashley, who he dated for five years. Ashley is missing and it's a big news story.

It takes a while, but it's finally clear to me. It's Stan who is going off the deep end, not Billy. Some of the scenes have audio that sounds like it's coming from inside a trash can, and other visual or sound techniques that make it clear Stan is not in his right mind.

One day neither Stan nor Christian show up at the automotive sound equipment store where Stan is a manager ...

This is a hard movie to watch, but ultimately rewarding. My favorite scenes involved Robert Forster as Billy's father, Patricia Kalember as his mother and Sammi Hanratty as his adorable little sister Barbie.

But Stan's creepy behavior is worth seeing too, I suppose. Toward the end we finally get a payoff, along with a mystery that never quite gets resolved.

One of the better performances comes from an actress with a brief scene at the college Alice attends in Ohio.

Is it any good? I suppose. It's not really my kind of movie.
