The good stuff
Not quite sure what I just watched, but I definitely liked it. Hosking's style is a weird mix of David Lynch, the Farrelly Brothers and Wes Anderson. If that makes no sense, be warned that this film doesn't either. But it's crazy fun and hilarious from start to finish, so it's all good really. A superb comedy, but not for everyone.
Jim Hosking, what a man. The Greasy Strangler is a bit cruder compared to An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn, but all the ingredients are already here. Crazy characters, unique comic timing, a very strange sense of humor and a soundtrack that's just mental. It's an extremely gross and alienating film, but boy is it funny.
