Ray and Joe by Charles Rodrigues - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesCharles Rodrigues 4 Oct 2013 2:03 PM

"Yes, there are cannibals, racially insensitive caricatures, cripples (let’s not dress it up with the politically correct terminology), bodily functions, etc. But the glue are the almost Beckettian scripts. or at least Ionescoesque. Rodrigues played with form often….  These are conceptual, writerly, formalist masterpieces.

"I refuse to analyze why, because nothing sucks the joy of out humor more than analyzing it. It’s like explaining a joke, and humor, much like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. That said, Charles Rodrigues created a whole lotta unbeautiful beauty and for that i am eternally grateful."
