Skeptical Watches: Good Dick [2008]

Written, directed, and starring Marianna Palka, and released in 2008.  Good Dick focuses on a clerk at a video rental store, who falls in love and begins stalking one of his customers, a reclusive young woman with a strange obsession for soft core porn.

Granted, my summary makes this sound like one of those creepy sex-filled torture thrillers you might find on some (probably best forgotten) late night TV channel, but the film is actually a kinda sweet quirky romantic comedy of sorts – almost cliché really, the classic story of two broken people, falling in love.

Unfortunately the film falls flat on many levels, and most viewers would probably find the characters to quirky (and creepy) to relate to.  However, if you are a socially awkward hopeless romantic like myself, with a disposition for the weird, then chances are you might end up loving this film as much as I do.

I spend all of my non-work time pretty much on games, movies, and listening to music and podcasts. Gadget lover and gamer - own several major consoles, but mainly play MMOs on the PC nowadays. I am quiet & shy but hell of a nice guy. Consider my childhood days to be the golden age of gaming, with companies like Origin with their Ultimas and Privateers. For me MMOs are all about the people, and not about gear or loot. View all posts by BC_Animus
