Ladies and gentlemen, this is it. This is the greatest film I ever have and ever will make. I hope you enjoy it.
I enjoy this piece mostly because of the odd manic energy it manages to exist in. It’s a movie about High School, first and foremost, and I don’t think it ever takes its concept of Prom or its characters as seriously as the characters themselves seem to take it, which I feel is perfect for a movie about high school. This is also the piece that has a cartoon frog spitting on the protagonist’s shoe, one of the most half-hearted and fantastic song-and-dance sequences ever, a character who enters and exits by exploding, a character who enters and exits by pelvic thrusting, a character played by a stuffed wombat, and several dance sequences that aren’t so much dancing than a surreal glimpse into these characters minds. To top it all off, it’s shoddiness, it’s location work of all being shot inside and outside of Andrew Gingerich’s grandmother’s house, and the putrid color work all make this into one of the most oddly surreal pieces about a kid falling in love with a wombat ever. As I said, it’s the best thing I ever have or ever will make.
Also, I really enjoy the line “This absolves Teff of all his previous social faux-pas”.
