    Notes from Melanie


    As a short film, this was not very good. At all. As a first student film, it was understandably better. It looked really flat, the swiveling back and forth shots were shaky for some reason, the performances were meh, and the dialogue was not great. It felt way too unrealistic and like they were each waiting to say what was written on the page as opposed to acting. The references to other movies feel way too much like Chris talking…

    Two of the best performances of the year, and a really stunning screenplay. Felt kinda drawn out around the end, but this was such a raw, personal, compelling movie. All of the stuff with young Otis and his father was really hard to watch but so brutally honest that it worked. Visually, nothing super interesting, but for the performances and the screenplay, really, really good

    More thoughts tonight, but to sum it up, this year’s been insane for film.

    didn't expect to love this as much as i did. hilarious, well-acted, well-shot, and above all, really heartfelt.
