“I wish I could see the world like you... You have this belief in this cosmic order and I envy that.” -Pat to Jeff
Even though (or because?) I’m a secular thinker, I derive some sort of strange vicarious pleasure in watching films whose characters’ dramatic supernatural experiences or strangely mystical world views are vindicated in the face of ridicule or misunderstanding. This is why I get goosebumps watching Field of Dreams. Or why I consider Signs a guilty pleasure.
I love that a Duplass brothers comedy takes this concept and runs with it. The interactions of the characters, especially the brothers, are awkward, endearing, and funny. and the dramatic side of the story totally works for me as well. This is an easy pick for any hidden gems list.
