Henry Fool

It's been about 10 years since Henry Fool, my all-time favorite film, was released. I saw it in Austin, Texas with a friend I knew from graduate school. I had seen other Hal Hartley films, but this one made the strongest impression on me. I even bought the book which contains the script and read it many times. Here's the trailer:


Also, here's Sony Pictures' webpage for the film:


You might also want to know that there was a sequel:


I liked it but not nearly as much as Henry Fool. See the DVD extras for more about the cult following behind Henry Fool, as well as Hartley's plans to make more sequels.

I'd personally like to see a "My Dinner with Andre" style conversation with Henry Fool and Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt's character in Fight Club).
