Watch This Movie: "Parents"
by Dan Persons
Who knew Bob Balaban — the nerdy translator from CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND; the asshole critic from LADY IN THE WATER; Russell Dalrymple from SEINFELD; and the dispeptic Jewish guy from A MIGHTY WIND and countless other movies — had it in him? A weird and nasty a meditation on natural (and unnatural) human hungers — not to mention the creeping fears that stalk most children — PARENTS slipped through the cracks on initial release, but is worth look-see by anyone with an abiding interest in the Cinefantastique.
Here, after the fold and courtesy of Hulu (which means there are commercials), is the full-length film.
