Klown (7/29, 9:45pm)

“HANDS DOWN THE FUNNIEST FILM OF THE YEAR…Plays like a superior, and way grosser, version of ‘The Hangover’.” — Aaron Hillis, The Village Voice

In a giddy Scandinavian NC-17-flavored take on “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, Klown (based upon the popular long-running TV show of the same name) follows two wildly inappropriate friends (internationaly celebrated comedians Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen) as they run amok through the Danish countryside, plowing through social taboos and unspeakable debaucheries. Our odd-couple pals have opposing agendas for their upcoming camping trip: Frank kidnaps his nephew in a thick-headed attempt to prove his fatherhood potential, while Casper is determined to visit a mysterious world-renowned brothel as the final stop on his “Tour de Pussy.” As these confrontational, consistently unpredictable Dogme-95-meets-the-Farrelly-Brothers plotlines collide, Klown will leave you hurting from nonstop laugh fits, and genuinely shocked by several denouements you’ll never have seen coming. When we had a special one-off screening of Klown a few months ago, it received some of the most prolonged, intense outbursts of audience laughter we’ve EVER clocked; come be a historic part of this genially depraved comedy phenomenon!
Dir. Mikkel Norgaard, 2010, HD presentation, 89 mins.
