If any of that sounds appealing to you, trust us: "Infinity Baby" hits its modern targets with plenty of bite, not unlike the way Mike Judge's "Idiocracy" did a decade ago.
Tukel's screenplay has some clever quips, but the total lack of emotional depth in any of the characters (well, except the women) means there's nothing redemptive in the people ...
As another in-joke whose punchline probably wouldn't be that funny even if there was one, it's unlikely to expand Byington's small coterie of admirers.
Looks like a holding pattern in a career that often threatens to attract attention beyond the festival circuit but hasn't yet managed to do so.
It's an odd film, intentionally so, and your mileage may vary when it comes to the lasting impact of an ephemeral effort, but there are interesting attitudes and neuroses here that save the viewing experience.
The skillfully obtuse Infinity Baby withdraws from a usual comic routine and commits to its outrageous nature wholeheartedly.
Infinity Baby feels a little underdone. It's good company while it lasts, but before you know it you're on your own again.
At 70 minutes, there's just enough "plot" to keep the perfectly matched cast sniping at each other with quips that feel ad-libbed but are actually tightly scripted.
It's an extremely funny and caustic film, but when it tempers that with moments of humanity, that is where the film shines.
The plot trucks along nicely, and manages to hit all the right beats in the scant 70 minute running time.
It's unique, absurd, strange, and memorable.
These far-fetched story elements combine to craft a legitimately hysterical film that manages to be satirical, but relatable in its comedy.
