The movie "Bad Boy Bubby" was pretty great. I actually picked it up because of Mark on Top Chef who I found an amusing character. The movie starts out like it's going to just batter the viewer with misery, like a Von Trier or Requim for a Dream or something, but fortunately it swerves off that course quickly and becomes bizarre and sickly funny. Very few movies actually live up to the label "dark comedy", usually it just means they're trying really hard to be quirky and are neither dark nor comedic, but this does. Also, lol - Nick Cave ?

"Blindness" the novel didn't do much for me. It was fine I guess but the characters were weak and nothing at all surprising happened and several bits were extremely unrealistic.
