Genre: Drama Rating: R Trailer: Click here The Film - Winner of the New Directors Award at the 2008 Edinburgh Film Festival and official selection in dramatic competition at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, Good Dick is an idiosyncratic romance about a video store clerk (Jason Ritter) and a female customer (Marianna Palka) who rents erotic DVDs from him. Not quite the sexploitation film its’ title might suggest, it is an unexpected love story following a young man on his pursuit of a lonely, troubled woman set in present day Los Angeles. In addition to starring in the film,Good Dick marks Marianna Palka’s writing and directorial debut. The Verdict - I for one, literally cannot wait to see this film! There is something about Independent films such as Good Dick that i cannot seem to resist! A video store clerk falling in love with his porn obsessed customer, doesn't nearly sum up this quirky, bemusing and overall original feature which is written, directed and starring the same wonder woman, Marianna Palka. Her unnamed character is a moody, bitter and mysterious woman who only ventures out into her home of LA to rent porn. Jason Ritter plays the unnamed love fool, who attempts to get to know her through dubious means. Tension is racked up between them with biting dialogue and physical, comedic performances. Even the video store diversions are filled out with rounded characters and entertaining banter with a male perspective including one video nerd's advice on finding the clitoris “it's the thing that looks like the flux capacitor”. Despite plenty of pussy references, Good Dick never seems contrite, and is instead underpinned by a deeper psychological context; by turns a funny and disturbing view of sexual relations. Altogether a blistering and nuanced debut from Palka, Good Dick manages to be both edgy and warm hearted. Jason Ritter and Marianna Palka have together conceived what i can already foresee as being one of the best romantic dramas of the year! For Those Who Like - True Romance, Wrist Cutters,Spun
