Bad Boy Bubby focuses on a 35 year-old man-child whose 'mother/keeper' keeps him imprisoned in a windowless hovel. From the moment it entered the festival cycle in 1993, the film has polarized audiences. This volume examines how and why the film produced such conflicting responses, as well as reviewing its current relevance.
