Aroview: Savage black comedy gifts Robin Williams his best role in years as a struggling writer and poetry teacher whose life is burdened by his insufferable teenage son.
Best not to give more of the plot away, but what transpires subverts Hollywood feelgood conventions which will discomfort viewers expecting a cozy Robin Williams 'family film', though it is never reckless and clearly steered by a compassionate, intelligent hand. As he did with SLEEPING DOGS LIE, writer-director Bobcat Goldthwaite confronts taboo with a uniquely ironic force, and with this film cements his place as a treasured practitioner of the black comedy genre. More please...
