In the cookie-cutter world of movies, it's a pleasure to come across a story you've never encountered before. Or ever will again. A film for which there can be no sequel.

A wildly imaginative if erratically executed urban fable.

Russo deserves some respect for trying to spin a whole movie out of an idea as strange, inspired and possibly repulsive as the one that fuels his feature debut.

The rough-edged film gets major points for originality. But its ending utterly flames out, as if the filmmakers suddenly found they had nowhere to land, so hit the self-destruct button.

Looking as if it were devised on acid and executed on mushrooms, this imaginative debut feature from the Seattle artist and filmmaker David Russo finds meaning in cleaning and life in dead ends.

[Director David] Russo hasn't quite mastered narrative but his compassion for the characters is genuine ...

Caters to those with short attention spans looking for a quick laugh and the film's immediate payoff is just that, but the underlying message still holds some degree of truth.

A 90-minute exercise in heightened reality.

Moves in an entirely unique direction. I love it, in all its sick, twisted glory.

Audience Reviews for The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle

An idealistic but confused young man who goes through a religion a week is fired from his position as a computer programmer and takes up with a janitorial service led by a transvestite Gulf War vet; when the gang start eating addictive cookies thrown in the garbage by a research firm, they discover that the side effects are hallucinations and male pregnancy. Endlessly inventive, it gets a pleasant hip vibe going that's sort of a cross between REPO MAN and SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD; it's only held back from cult-movie immortality by an incredibly frustrating non-ending.

Strange little film. Not entirely sure what to make of it - don't even know if I quite understood it, but to try and sum it up, a religious young guy is sacked from his computer job and goes to work as a janitor. The office he is cleaning is a company which makes cookies and they have been doing experiments with the ingredients. The cookies have the effect of drugs and the males end up "pregnant" with little blue blob things, which they give birth to on the toilet... see what I mean?!
This is a very original film. For the most part is interesting, although occasionally found my mind wandering (however, I did watch this one late at night). It was great to see Natasha Lyonne in something more recent. She really looks great in this considering her health problems and issues in her personal life. I couldn't see her without wishing my hair looked like that! The young guy who plays Dory is also quite convincing, although some of the janitor friends were a bit annoying and unlikeable.
I would hesitate to recommend this as I don't really know that it would appeal to many, but if you like something a little different, it may be worth a look.
