In a late night show interview I learned of Hal Hartly. Renting Henry Fool was my first step in learning about the man's work. Henry Fool is a charismatic guy who is nothing but trouble, but oh the people he effects! Leaving chaos in his wake, he moves into the lives and hearts of the Grim family. People who are flawed in their own ways, struggling to find themselves. Henry encourages the brother down a creative road, and seduces the sister. Both relationships take crazy, violent turns and wait till you meet Ned. Loved this film and look forward to spending more time with these characters.
