    35 Shots of Rum

    ★★★★½

    A perseverant meditation on weak connections between people. Weak connections are not always founded by a successful few first impressions, they are just as well made from the degradation of stronger ones from estrangement or a mutual need for distance.

    Truly impossible to check the ironypoisoned, misanthropic and depressed boxes and not evoke a dead-on Father John Misty. Otherwise it's Collegehumor reminiscent content. All the musical parody here has been done to death and refuses to be memorable.
