'Momma's Man'

The first really great independent film of the fall is about a schlub returning home to visit his parents during a business trip. For reasons that may or may not involve anxiety about his brand-new infant son, he decides to never leave again. Director Azazel Jacobs cast his own parents in the film, and his childhood home, a garbage-strewn wonderland of a Manhattan apartment, is the setting. It's sad and funny and beautiful, just like going home. (Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave, 267-5380. 7 and 9 pm, $5–$8.50.)

for me, this movie was like two solid hours of having papercuts inflicted over every square centimeter of my body. maybe that means it was well done.

GGGGGGGGGGOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDDDDDD that movie is boring. I saw it at Sundance and regretted not going to a better film. There's good stuff in it, but they really needed to edit it down (they may have by now, I don't know).
