Increasingly overshadowed by her boyfriend’s recent rise to fame as a contemporary artist creating sculptures from stolen furniture, Signe hatches a vicious plan to reclaim her rightfully deserved attention within the milieu of Oslo’s cultural elite. Kristoffer Borgli’s skin-crawling, black-as-midnight-on-a-moonless-night satire about influencer culture, depraved narcissism, and the vagaries of the high art world slices particularly deeply alongside recent Scandinavian critical darling THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD, whose Anders Danielsen Lie makes a cameo appearance here as a concerned doctor.
“No, it’s not FEMALE TROUBLE, but it’s just as nuts. Pretty? Pretty? Pretty fucked up!” —John Waters’s Best Films of 2022 (#4), Art Forum “A beautifully whip-smart black comedy that shines a damning light on society's intensifying self-obsessions…. SICK OF MYSELF is, for all the dark themes and unsettling imagery, deeply watchable — a perfectly executed Black comedy accompanied by humorously vicious counter-culture commentary that cannot be overlooked.” —Bianca O’Neill, Time Out
