This is an odd film. In a lot of ways, it’s in the same vein as John Waters, Bruce La Bruce, John Cameron Mitchell*: queer, bizarre, hyper-independent. Watch Out is calmer than all of these (though still contains a lot of narration and wiener). It’s as if some offspring — or close friend — of these film makers took a Valium, read a copy of John Kennedy Toole’s A Confederacy of Dunces and cast a hot guy as the misanthropic protagonist — and gave him a strong onanistic impulse.
Clearly I need to find more by these people.
*As a matter of fact, a minor part is played by Peter Stickles, who also starred in Shortbus.
