Last weekend, I attended the Waterfront Film Festival in Saugatuck, MI. The festival is always a pleasure to attend, and this year brought an impressive lineup of movies. I’m reviewing everything I saw over the weekend, and today I’ll be looking at the comedy Wuss, and the documentaries Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians and Sadermania.
Wuss – This dark comedy gives us Mitch Parker, a substitute teacher terrorized by his own students. Life is a series of humiliations for Mitch – his boss torments him while he’s trying to hook up at his high school reunion, he lives with his mother and sister (a sister who verbally assaults and sometimes hits him), and even his buddies who smoke weed and play Dungeons and Dragons with him can’t resist emasculating him whenever they get the chance.
