Conventional Idiocy - The Idiots review by JG

Spoiler Alert
26/12/2007

A well-made, funny and thoughtful film ; but ultimately a bit disappointing because of its well-ploughed content, and unoriginal take on it. There's something for everyone : comedy, philosophy, pornography, social comment, and a real story involving at least 2 interesting people. And it's all filmed according to the strictures of the director's beliefs : musicless, 'real' and a bit off-beat. But really it's a bunch of hippies versus Responsibility, and - apart from a few really funny, shocking and emotional scenes - it doesn't quite pack the punch it occasionally promises. Dogma is fine, and it still looks like a film that is pushing some boundaries, and its 'conventional' setting gives it immediate impact, but, in the end, it doesn't break the mould.
