Devos’ feature debut. A story of grief. A teenage boy in Belgium witnesses his friend being being stabbed by some other kids. We only see this play out on a crappy CCTV monitor from four awkward angles. Despite it being quite far from America, I found the characters, their riding BMX bikes around winding suburban sounds, and love for black metal quite relatable. Critiziced for being glacially paced, expect to sip this one like a good glass of wine.
