  1. “Happy Happy Joy Joy: The Ren & Stimpy Story” was really interesting at first... then they sat John K down to interview him. It’s not historical. It’s an interview they conducted for the film, and at first, I wanted to close the window... but then he started talking. And it got interesting again. The movie is offered without commentary. The interviews with the cast, the crew, John K.’s abuse victims, and John K himself, are meant to speak for themselves. It’s a strategy that sees mixed success because he has this sort of “rock star” persona and it makes him seem cooler than he should be, all things considered. But it’s an interesting watch, because when John K speaks, it’s like looking into the soul of a crazy person. Like watching an interview with Jeffrey Dahmer. He’s insane, you can tell just by the way he talks, how he tells stories, how animated he is... but at the same time, it’s like, tragic how messed up this guy ended up being, because he was a creative genius.
