  1. Watched it 2 weeks ago, have been raving about it since. Not only is it a great example of what creativity can be like, it also stretches by far the definition of “documentary”. If it can at all be called that.

  2. Yeah, I thought the concept of the film was very original. After it was done, I felt the urge to whip out a piece of paper and start drawing.

    And did you see the guy that plays Robert Crumb? The voice, the tics — eerily close to the original!

  3. Polymorphously perverse. :-)

    the really creepy part is after the play, when the off-screen harvey comments “god only knows how i’ll feel when i see this movie!” which reverses the apparent realism of everything.
    And yes, just a couple of days after seeing it i went out and bought myself some bristol board to draw on…
