    Lots of style AND lots of substance. You could call this the ultimate illustration of a subject matter. It's also very enjoyable to watch.

    This was a lot of fun and was actually pretty funny during certain parts, especially the depiction of Satan. Also, when two old ladies pissed in buckets and chucked them at the door of their neighbor I burst out laughing. I have a feeling they went and grabbed most of these actresses from an old folks home and just looked for the weirdest looking people they could find. One last note: any scene where people were eating was pretty disgusting but probably very accurate. 3 years 2 months ago
