"nothing happens" yeah but the vibes

movies without a strong central plot or a typical three act structure, where instead it's mostly just characters wandering around, talking, making connections, and living life đź’“

i see the phrase "nothing happens" as a critique frequently, but i wanted to show that's not necessarily that's a bad thing! you don't need a bunch of plot twists to tell a story and make an emotional connection with the audience.
