Bag Boy Lover Boy (2014)

Who decides what is art and what is junk? Is there much of a difference between Alejandro Jodorowsky and Lucio Fulci? What is good and what is bad? This movie raises those questions and more. Does it answer them? Kinda.

Albert is a strange man — a hotdog vendor who can barely communicate with the rest of the world. Played by Jon Wachter, a first-time actor who is usually a writer and director, he’s an unsettling presence everywhere he appears. Suddenly, he becomes the muse of a Richard Kern-like photographer and forced to endure all manner of bloody and disturbing photo sessions.

Our hero — is he the hero? — decides to become a photographer himself. But all he knows is how Ivan acts. And the only people he knows how to hire are prostitutes. This can’t end well. And it doesn’t.

This isn’t a perfect movie. But it will keep your attention throughout. It has an odd undercurrent beyond its subject matter, making the viewer think they are watching a real maniac and not just one on the screen.

You can grab this video from Severin or watch it on Amazon Prime.

  1. Dude! Day 20: Sunday Dinner foodie fodder! Need to repost this one! I hope you see this and consider it.

    I watched this movie and really liked it. It gave me that uncomfortable King of Comedy crossed with The Fan (the Patton Oswald sports dork-parking garage vendor; actually a very good flick that died on the vine). Jon Wachter shot and scored with this one. Need a show-the-love redux.
