This film gave me a Woody.
A weak first half gives way to a second that's pretty exhilarating. There's a sequence that bridges the two that's absolutely brilliant (and if it was my movie, I might have gone a little further into the possible psychological consequences of a character going through an experience as wild as that).
There's a few obvious greenscreens, a jarringly terrible series of editing choices for a plot twist, and the mid-credits scene should have been the actual ending of the film itself, but overall, I really enjoyed it.
4/5 dentists agree.
Watched through my glasses.
I think I just expect more things to happen in coming-of-age films? idk.
I thought it'd be an excellent portrayal of growing up with depression. It was a good portrayal of that I guess?
This had a fantastic build-up. I loved the characters and the world they lived in... and then the last 20 minutes is just kind of too real in the sense that not much happens. Like there's a resolution but it's not exactly exciting or emotional.
