| Tony's Character
Tony's version of Chip Hemple was like a human rendition of Garfield. The humor in the film was of an uncomfortable nature, taking cues from Dadaists and other Surrealists, particularly in the football scene where spectators line the backyard in "Fruit-of-the-Loom"-esque costumes. The direction, editing, and delivery of dialogue also took cues from Lynch and early John Waters, taking the interior life of a typical American family and turning it into an unpredictable jazz odyssey. I highly recommend this film to anyone who appreciates short films that are both intelligent and cohesive, but not necessarily glib and commercial. This film had a vital element that today's so-called "quirky black comedies," such as "The Royal Tannenbaums" or "Running With Scissors" utterly lacked: heart.
