    Adelaide Film Festival 2022 #11 ("work-in-progress screening")

    Let’s get it out right off the bat(mos): Tim Carlier’s debut feature is an incredible accomplishment; at once a scrappy “friends make a movie” movie and a work of fully-formed comic and cinematic sensibility, if not maybe actual genius. The premise is simple: actress leaves film set with a mic, sound recordist has to get it back.

Synecdoche, Adaptation and Eternal Sunshine are three films I adore, and here I just feel none of the humanity or creativity that makes those films so special. Sure, there's discomfort and moments of deeply upsetting psychological horror - as a cinematic…
