Werewolf ★★

After watching one of her shorts I knew I wouldn't like Ashley Mckenzie as a filmmaker. She's cold and tries to hide her shortcomings as a filmmaker by faking an abstract style. Her debut feature is no different and that's unfortunate because there easily could've been a good made from this script. Her inability to give her characters personality or even any emotional depth holds the film back so much that you question why she even made the film. Misery and hardships do come with addiction but an addict is so much more than their addiction and with this film not doing that. Not only does it fail to humanize addiction but I would also argue shows that this film merely exploits a deep issue to give it any sort of credibility.
