Inspired by the A.V. Club column, The New Cult Canon series celebrates the next generation of cult movies and the obsessive weirdoes who love them.
From Scott Tobias May 15, 2008:
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is a “screenwriter’s movie,” which is usually my shorthand for saying a film has no visual sensibility whatsoever, but in this case, means a film that bares the gnawing frustrations of being a writer, like Barton Fink or Naked Lunch. The script keeps doubling back and commenting on itself, via a “bad” narrator who has to reverse course and fill in a critical piece of information he omitted earlier, or by rolling its eyes at the tacky feel-good endings required of Hollywood movies. Black breaks all the rules he can, and when he can’t break the rules, Downey comes right out and complains about it….
