    Reader comments on Tarnation

    John Caoette seems like he is still very young child. I agree that this film was purposeless, as it did nothing to try to explain the atrocities that had happened. Couldn't he have spoken to a doctor about electric shock therapy? What the hell happened with the lithium overdose. He glides over serious issues in preference to sitting on a toilet, smoking, looking directly into the camera.

    This film came off as a "aren't I fascinating" sort of diatribe. John's next question is "now will you give me a job?"

    As someone who had lost my own mother to a lithium overdose, I feel John is using his families dysfunction for personal gain.

    But why not? Authors have been doing it for centuries.
