    A film that takes the whole ''slow-burner'' approach quite literally. The first half is tremendously slow and tedious. The two main characters and their unintelligible mumbling aren't that interesting, there isn't too much plot progression and the audiovisual style is a bit too understated to really create a captivating atmosphere. The docu-like bits with the grandma also felt a bit out of place, slowing the film down even more.

    But there is a certain point where the ''slow'' finally ceases…

Some people might…

    ★★★½

    A curious piece of work from McDonald. Plays like a woozy daydream that somehow feels both surreal and down to earth at the same time. The rather straightforward plot and the deadpan acting kind of distract you from the fact there's some pretty oddball stuff going on at times. The soundtrack also contributes to this, with a soothing jazzy score creating a certain contrast to all the wackiness.

    Overall great acting, neat visuals, some nice Lynchian vibes and a handful…
