Movies are the final frontier of the imagination. They bring to life with the power of the passing image a thousand words squared. Rat Pack Rat combines documentary and fantasy, cinema verité and horror film. This has to be one of the most disturbing vignettes i have ever seen. Poignant and pathetic, frightening and fabulous.
What a strange, strangely haunting little film. An unlikely plot, unlikely and unlikable people, and yet it is a high order of movie-making. I have no idea what the director will do next, but if I see his name I'm more than very likely to see his work. It's a terrific showcase for a talented director.
Extraordinary combination of black humor and pathos. Goes to places you never expect it to go. A wonderful movie in every respect -- writing, directing, acting, concept, set.
So creepy. Not what I expected....
Creepy, but very profound, and in a way that's hard to explain.
Weird, tasteless, waste of time.
Interesting and Different. Packed a lot of story in18 minutes!
Very sad....Didn't care for the content.
that was the most disturbing thing i've ever seen. hands down.
