    Between Two Ferns: The Movie


    I really enjoyed it. I feel it reached the high water mark for a Between Two Ferns road movie. A great mash up of the web interviews we've grown to love and a goofy plot.

    This film's cinematography is stunning. So colorful, yet we still can feel the dust and dryness of the landscape. The emotional final meeting might be one of the most unique conversations I have ever seen. Overall, a fantastic and very human film.

    This film creates an unsettling atmosphere that it is able to maintain all throughout. The haunting organ music pairs nicely with the sometimes hypnotic camera movements, leaving the viewer in a dream state. At times it may feel a little dated, but it is certainly an achievement of its time. A horror classic that feels like it could be a twilight zone episode or a David Lynch film.
