    It's dorky, but damn, what a tight script!

    ★★★½

    I love seeing old clips from the Olympics being recontextualized to illustrate the evil reality that was going on behind the scenes. Very educative and illuminating documentary onto how a corrupted system like that or USA Gymnastics was able to persist for so long.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Nice polychromatic tension-builder. Also liked the relationship allegory drawn with cells.

    Spoiler-wise for this movie and Twin Peaks, I have to say that the whole idea of a double version of yourself running out into the real world isn't fully original - Twin Peaks has dealt with this theme to some variation already with doppelgangers and tulpas, although this film is much more optimistic about out-of-this world doubles of yourself running about in the real world.

    Hilariously kooky short film about bumbling domestic terrorists trying to navigate around a suddenly conflicting situation. 4K camera footage looked A W E S O M E. Also incentivizes the filmmaking potential at these short-form film fests (this was premiered at Denver's 48 hour film festival).
