Eating Out: Dark, dirty and funny
Abstract:Eating Out by Pål Sletaune (1993) portrays seemingly unsympathetic characters in a dirty and filthy bar most of us would avoid visiting. This article will discuss the director’s strategy, and focus upon how the film might be considered both in the light of dirty realism in the tradition of Charles Bukowski and in connection with French films in particular from the 1990s.
