Amusing, but not great - An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn review by LC

Spoiler Alert
25/06/2019

I watched this on the back of the directors other movie; "The Greasy Strangler", which is highly recommended for those nostalgic of the trash cinema of John Walters. Sadly this film doesn't live up to the previous experience. It's dotted with some good oddball seedy characters, but the plot is too thin, and the payoff of the final performance is, although bizarre, disappointing.

Worth a go if you're ok with oddness - An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn review by MB

If you like Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) and Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords), then there's plenty in this film for you to enjoy. Both are on great form, with Clement's character not dissimilar to the one he played in the excellent Eagle vs Shark.

The story is minimal, but that's not the point. The focus is on the left-field comedy, which is seldom laugh-out-loud, but more a kind of celebration of oddness, social awkwardness and the bizarre. I think what saves the style of comedy is that we are not being asked to laugh at people because they are 'weird', rather I sense in the film a compassion for the oddness that is in all of us. In a way, every character in the film is a variation of Napolean Dynamite.

Having said all that, the story is intriguing enough and it builds to a final showcase that had me laughing my socks off - so it was all worth it.
