Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Comedian and TV writer Louis C.K. wrote, produced, and directed this comedy about New York photo shop owner Charles (Chuck Sklar), labeled a "mean bastard" by his mailman (J.B. Smoove). After a date with nympho Lola Vagina (Heather Morgan) goes nowhere, Charles meets elderly Florence (Martha Greenhouse). Married to a gambler (Joe Dolphin), Flo hasn't heard from her son (Greg Hahn) for two decades. After her husband is killed by a pack of wild dogs, Charles and Flo marry -- but then her son returns and she also decides to adopt a gun-wielding teen named Clean (Bruce Brown). It's all too much for Charles, who decides to head back to his photo shop. Gagwriter Louis C.K. has scripted for David Letterman, Conan O'Brien (seen here in a cameo), Dana Carvey, and Chris Rock. Filmed in black-and-white with Super-16 blown up to 35mm. Shown at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival.
