35. Delicatessen (1991)

Roger's Rating :
Thumbs Down

Should be :

Roger gave this great movie a thumbs down but he said in his At The Movies review that he saw it in a dark theater and could hardly see what was going on. He doesn't have an online review posted.
He said in his At The Movies review "completely self indulgence in terms of special effects and wild images without enough discipline in terms of the story to give it any meaning or direction." He compares it to Brazil which he says he didn't quite get either.
The movie is a lot like Brazil. Sometimes you have to not worry so much about the plot and just sit back and enjoy the show.
The movie is an interesting addition to the body of post apocalyptic movies. Like Brazil, and A Boy and His Dog, this movie combines humor and a nightmarish future, and does it very well. Rather than being dull and depressing I found it to be interesting and funny.
It has an 86% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 7.9 rating on IMDB. Strange and bizarre, this is not for all tastes.
