This movie “The Waiter” is a genuine gift as far as movie recommendations go. –far removed from the mediocre muck.
(However, be warned. There is a pawn shop scene where it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to have your hand firmly pressed against your tummy ahead of time. I haven’t laughed until tears sprang out of my eyes in a very long time and that scene broke that record instantly.)
The plot is deliciously clever (enough to make this two bit writer respectfully jealous)
about a waiter who attempts negotiating with the author of his less than perfect life.
All throughout, it has everything I crave and adore from the true filmmaking talent.
(Slight yet trivial spoiler) You’ll even have an opportunity to witness the slickest non- cartoon presentation of “birdies-circling -above- a -knocked -out -man” ever created.
(It also reminds me how much I would rather exist as a slave whose entertainment is forged by the hands of intelligent and savvy masters rather than rule as a queen over a kingdom that’s chock full of witless and worthless trash-manufactured and donated by the same.)
movie available with English subtitles on Amazon
