These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Critical Dissonance - Audiences (the few who actually saw it when it came out) generally rated the film higher than critics did.
Crosses the Line Twice - Blood pours down the screen, people do despicable things, yet one can't help but think, "why is this so damn funny?" The secret's in the score.
"White man eats the body of Jesus Christ every Sunday."
Faux Symbolism: Theres a lot of Christ references surrounding Ives which don't make a lot of sense and not even the director or the actor can satisfactorily explain.
Ho Yay - Boyd and Ives got a lot of it, especially since there's no other love interest in sight. And they end up dying lying on top of each other in a forced embrace...yowza.
