Paterson's rushing, spiraling journey through Victor's twisty tale of how he ended up in group is incandescent: his blistering rage, withering scorn, breathtaking sadness seizes the viewer, sweeping you along on its tide.
Victor's sister is in love with a dog, but her relationship is in better shape than his with his wife-slash-third cousin. His father calls himself the Saddest Man in the World, but clearly it's Victor who is that saddest man, as he tries to make us understand the difference between weird and fucked-up, and as he navigates his way between fury and tears.
