Man ★★★★½

Always impressive, when so much can be said with so very little. Myna Joseph lets so much of this story be told in the spaces between its two young leads: in the words left unsaid, in the facial expressions made by one as the other leaves the frame. MAN aligns itself smartly with the fear and pain that tends to come along with formative new experiences, doubling back on itself to explore those moments where we realize that we're inching up to a particularly frightening instance of growth or change, the discovery of a potentially alarming new version of ourselves, only we're doing it now without the support system that has very recently been left behind as a result of that very same growth process.
