    Yeah, The Firemen’s Ball feels easier to appreciate for what it did and does than to actually sit down and watch. In particular, the whole “Ho ho, these bureaucrats can’t even provide many conventionally attractive women for the beauty contest, can ya believe it?” schtick is super ick. (Reiterating bog-standard attitudes of the patriarchy under the guise of edgy satire being a persistent failure of much of the French, Japanese, and American New Waves as well.)

    Nonetheless, for all that it is on the nose, the running gag about the cake is an excellent nyuk.
