Creampuff

USA, 1999 (MIFF 1999, Fiction)

Director: Jared Seide

Robert (known as Creampuff) and Jack share an apartment. Creampuff is obese and Jack is consumed with hatred, much of it directed as vitriol towards his passive roommate. Jack appears unable to leave his armchair. The tension mounts as Creampuff makes preparations for a birthday party. This character driven film examines the relationship of mutual self loathing and dependency and the desire for intimacy between the two men in a claustrophobic environment.
