John and the Hole

John and the Hole ★★

This is an interesting concept and nothing more. Makes completely lateral moves the entire runtime until it ends in the same exact place it begins. I didn't necessarily actively dislike this from moment to moment, but at the end of it it's just a big empty question mark. Where is the motivation, change, growth or regression? Where is the family dynamic and why are we just watching this kid hang out the whole time? If this took swings with its concept and missed, that'd be much more preferable than stagnancy. What is the point?

GRADE: C
