revenge-for-jolly

The first time I saw Revenge for Jolly I thought it was terrible. The second time, I decided it was quite good. After watching it a third time: I think this movie is a satire of gun violence. Maybe?

The thing about this film is: It’s not a cool action movie. It’s not a vengeance thriller. It’s maybe not even a black comedy.

You have to go into this movie understanding both these guys are completely crazy. Harry, in particular, is one of the strangest film characters of all time. 

His relationship with the dog was not cute; it was disturbing. I still can’t work out if the dog was his pet or, eh, his girlfriend.

It’s sad more people haven’t seen this film, because it is genuinely strange. The viewer has to read between the lines a whole lot.  

Oh, and I could be wrong here. But Oscar was legitimately smoking pot in that scene, wasn’t he? It wasn’t even that difficult to spot.
