Swanson is about to inherit the estate of his dying father. Meanwhile, he spends his days wandering around with his friends. The Comedy taps into a dark fiber of comedy, which still echoes long after the end. 

Focus & Homages / Rick Alverson
Premier latinoamericana

A strange comedy; an uncomfortable film; a piece with an unclassifiable sense of humor. When someone describes a film this way, they’re exaggerating almost every time: the attempts at addressing the genre from a different angle are scarce and superficial. But there are exceptions, and The Comedy is this decade’s clearest one. Rick Alverson’s film is all that, because it tries new things, and literally destroys other ones. It breaks the story, the characters, and the comfort of the viewer, without ever neglecting him nevertheless. The Comedy is dry, apathetic, and annoying. But its aggressiveness is not gratuitous. Alverson dodges cheap provocation by turning each offense into an invitation to reflect on the human condition, and makes us wonder whether we should keep laughing despite the horror. DdF
