great little dark comedy
I’ve watched this film almost half a dozen times so I guess I am part of the Observe and Report cult. All you people giving it one, two star reviews…really? Are you that masochistic that you have to write a dissertation on something you hate? This is a great movie that knocks you on your ass with its dark humor and is indeed offensive. In fact, I would say if you’re not offended in certain scenes, then there may be actually something wrong with you. Go see your shrink and talk about it. Despite that, there are also scenes that are moving and true to life which make this more than just some exercise in shoddy exploitation. At any rate, I love this movie and own a copy (if that says anything) Why you ask? Well, for one thing this is a great movie about a delusional man with bipolar disorder. The film has dream elements where he comes close to realizing his over the top ambitions only to be smacked in the face by societal regulations. On a serious note, there are a lot of young men who cannot fit into society and find a deeper purpose for living. The mall seems like the perfect metaphor for what has happened to American society. It is a boring, stultifying environment where banality is seen as the highest good and crass consumerism is the almighty God. Certain professions like security guard seem to attract nutballs, guys who dream of a police badge and a gun yet have to settle for chasing off skateboarders from the mall parking lot while carrying mace and at most a tazer. Now is the film an indictment of a crazed society and its shiftless youth or is it a nihilistic celebration of recklessness and mental illness? Even after watching it as many times as I have, I’m not sure I can come to any stunning conclusion. Its opened ended and while I know that can infuriate people looking for closure (and worse, a message) its the truth about this shocking and original film. Let me say that you owe it to yourself to check it out. When truly stupid comedies are abundant (usually ones about young men smoking pot and trying to get laid), its refreshing to see a film that dares to be wildly different in true punk rock fashion.
Travis Bickle: Mall Cop
That would be a better title for this movie. I’m sure you’ve probably heard that comparison before and you will probably continue to hear it because it is extremely accurate. I went into this movie expecting a dark, angry comedy. I got the dark and angry. The comedy fell woefully short. I don’t believe I laughed once during the movie. Every scene that is supposed to be comedic falls flat and drags on and on and on. The characters that are supposed to be comedic are just annoying (the drunk mother, the slutty cosmetic girl, the lisping sidekick). I actually found myself checking my watch during the movie to see how much more I had to endure. All of this could have been redeemed if the filmmakers had just stuck the landing. The ending is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen and completely ignores any form of reality, even the one set up in the film. Our delusional Mall Cop returns to the mall after being fired for beating up real police officers and is flashed by the mall pervert. After an overlong slow motion chase Travis Bickle wannabe takes a short cut and shoots the flasher at near point blank range. He then refuses to call paramedics for the gravely wounded perv opting instead to take him to the police station in his security guard golf cart. At the police station Bickle marches the bleeding and still naked perv past about a dozen uniformed officers and detectives to claim his moment of glory for catching the perv when the cops couldn’t and then walks away and gets rehired as head of mall security. Ridiculous. Avoid this, watch Taxi Driver instead. It avoids lame attempts a comedy opting instead to be a real character study of a very sick and damaged individual.
