Circa his infamously high-kicking Letterman incident, Crispin Glover is amazing as an unhinged agoraphobic with a frozen cat problem and some serious platform shoes. As he goes toe-to-toe with WKRP In Cincinatti’s Howard Hesseman giddily portraying a hapless real-estate seminar junkie, Rubin and Ed drags the buddy comedy formula out into the desert, gives it a hallucinatory sunstroke, and buries it where only the oddballs dare to dig. Trent Harris’s Utah-centric feature debut is big on heart, and boasts not only nonstop, highly quotable outbursts of unrestrained acting (“My cat can eat a whole watermelon!”), but also as much goofball charm as the weirdest episodes of The Adventures of Pete & Pete. This thoroughly (and literally) wigged-out journey of malformed man love has still never been on DVD; join us for an ultra-rare 35mm presentation of this marvel of laid-back lunacy! Writer/director Trent Harris will be here in person for a Q&A after the film! Dir. Trent Harris, 1992, 35mm, 82 min. X-ALT-DESC:
