Marita Carbone is an old aristocrat lady in decay. In order to mitigate her loneliness, she collects absurd things. One day, two Mormons disturb the peace of her home. Collecting is a black comedy that delves into consumerist compulsion, religious sentiment and the inability to love.
Selections and Awards:
It's a mash-up of criminal satire, horror and comedy that kept me entertained from start to finish. Marita Carbone is a true standout as the eccentric aristocrat with a twisted penchant for hoarding oddities. The collision between her and the hapless Mormon duo is both hilarious and cringe-worthy, as we witness the lengths she'll go to in order to fulfill her consumerist desires. Plenty of religious commentary and a healthy dose of gore hahaha.
