(Best Feature Film)

These girls are gorgeous and they’re sisters...  I’ll be damned if Al Quaida is going to ruin my sex life!”

Nobody The Great  is a movie about ordinary people in an extraordinary situation.  Despite the fact it was inspired by such dark subject matter as the Stanford Prison Experiment, the Milgram Experiment and the treatment of prisoners at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq , it’s very definitely an irreverent, allegorical tale, a comedy with a heritage that goes back to Life of Brian, La Cage aux Folles, Dr Strangelove and beyond...
