Rated NR

A fake documentary that, while not unfunny, is more interested in the day-to-day drama of its main character’s life than getting cheap laughs from his profession. Kenny (Shane Jacobson) works for a portable-toilet rental company in Australia. He transports, installs and cleans the mobile crappers, and finds satisfaction in doing his job well. While poop is inherently funny, what makes Kenny such a compelling film is the bull’s-eye performance of Jacobson in the lead, and the way writer/director Clayton Jacobson creates a sad and hopeful narrative around Kenny’s love for his son, his wide-eyed optimism, his ailing father and the glorious, redemptive trip he takes to the United States. In the end, Kenny is deeply triumphant, and an interesting example of the ways in which narrative filmmaking can still be experimental.
