"The Cult of Sincerity" - Postmodernism and Sincerity

Is it possible to live our lives without being ironic, sarcastic and . . . postmodern? A character in this offbeat comedy aims to find the most sincere message he can produce on a T-shirt. The film seems to have slipped under the radar of most reviewers in the media because if was the first film to be fully premiered and distributed on YouTube before being pulled to be distributed as a three dollar download. It's now also available as VOD (Video On Demand) from Amazon.

Here's three interesting scenes. All of them are about how none of us can escape being postmodern and the main character's uphill struggle against the irony, sarcasm and relativism of our postmodern age.
