Signature Move

Signature Move ★★★½

a little sad to see the peculiarities of Reeder's style diluted somewhat by someone else's script but like this story could not have come just from her obv and i'm grateful for the influence of the cowriter/producer/star in making it what it is

at times the heavily landing jokes or symbolism feel characteristic of reeder's blunt emotional directness, at times they feel more generally like clunky writing. probably it's not worth discerning between the two, whether it works or not is up to more than intentionality... i just miss the surrealism of Reeder's short films that allows those moments to work as well as they do there
