It's not every day that a crazy angry pyschotic clown gets your sympathy, but that is exactly what happens in this film. The lead actor is incredible, showing us all off the bat (pun intended) that there is something a bit off about Patch the clown. Our "side" characters, who play a huge part scenewise and storywise add to this creative world being built, part fantasy part reality...essentially a circus show, with magic tricks and eccentric characters. I was never quite sure what our clown would do next and he does some awful things. Yet, somehow I end up laughing with him and then feeling bad for him...somehow I am rooting for this lunatic. That's another cool part about this movie, all these slimy characters...these deadbeats have something enduring about each of them. This is the blood of the film, but the story is crazy fun, the music perfect, the imagery wacky, all in all, I'd buy a ticket again to see this one.
Mr. Patch, the Magical Pirate Clown, is harassed to a breaking point and violence ensues.
