Applesauce is a dark comedy movie that revolves around the consequences of saying anything over the radio. Directed by Onur Tukel, the movie stars Max Casella, Trieste Kelly Dunn, and Jennifer Prediger in the lead roles. The story of the film is based on the life of Ron, a married man living a happy life with his wife, Nicki. The couple is content with their life, but things take a drastic turn when Ron calls into a local radio show and shares an embarrassing and off-putting story from his past. The caller after Ron, named Tyler, shares an even worse story that gives Ron the strange feeling that their lives are connected.

As Ron's story becomes more popular on the show, his life starts to fall apart - Nicki is disgusted by his story, his co-workers mock him and his marriage begins to crumble. However, to Ron's surprise, his story seems to resonate with many listeners of the show who call and share their own confessions, including Tyler. This realization disturbs him, and soon, things take a violent turn when Tyler challenges Ron to a "Confession Battle" with no rules.

The movie is divided into three parts, each named after the fundamental components of the confession ritual: confession, penance, and absolution. As the story progresses, it delves deep into the psychology of the characters as they struggle with their own secrets and how much they are willing to reveal to others. The dialogue in the film is witty and sarcastic, and the actors deliver their lines effortlessly, carrying the weight of the story throughout.

Max Casella portrays the character of Ron in a convincing manner. He displays the various emotions that Ron experiences with ease, from the feeling of joy and relief after sharing his story to the crushing realization of the impact it has on his life. Trieste Kelly Dunn plays Nicki, Ron's wife, and delivers an impactful performance as her character is torn between her love for her husband and her disgust at his story. Jennifer Prediger plays Kate, another character affected by the confession battle between Ron and Tyler, and delivers a performance that elevates the movie.

One of the significant strengths of the movie is how it portrays the consequences of the characters' actions. Whether it be Ron sharing his story or Tyler taking the challenge of the confession battle, it shows how their actions can have a profound impact on their lives and those around them. The film also delves deep into the theme of guilt and how it can eat away at someone's psyche. The movie shows how confession, penance, and absolution are necessary for one's well-being, but it also warns us about the dangers of sharing too much.

In conclusion, Applesauce is a unique and compelling movie that delves deep into the complexities of human psychology. It's dark, funny and at times, uncomfortable. The movie's sharp dialogue, memorable performances and the twists in the story will keep you engaged till the end. Introspective and thought-provoking, Applesauce is definitely worth watching.
