Movie: Napolean Dynamite

Napoleon Dynamite DVDEerily accurate skewering of indiscriminate rural white 80’s culture (with a Mormon slant) as it’s “rescued” by urban & hispanic influences. I enjoyed it, but remain somewhat mystified by the popularity that originally made me wary of the film. Maybe it’s attributable to the absolutely bizarre presentation, or the apparent idiocy of the characters. Somehow I can’t believe we’ve suddenly developed an appreciation of thick, deadpan satire, but maybe I’m wrong…

Referred by random stranger in mugs with a 10-year-old saying quesa-dee-li-a.
