    Damn. This one really is cooler than the other side of the pillow. I hope some of that rubs off on me from watching. Driven by pure vibes, every moment captivating.

    A complete redefining of all that cinema can and should be. A new level of creativity in both humor and presentation. A third act that somehow makes you cry tears of sadness and hysterical laughter at the same exact moment.

    On one hand, it's pretty shocking to see that such a confidently presented and steady film is actually the feature debut for director Darius Marder. On the other hand, it's almost expected that this could be the case when a film feels so unique and fresh. This is a viewing experience so intimate that you might feel almost voyeuristic while watching. This is down to a few things mostly: the cinematography style, a decidedly naturalistic tone that almost feels like…
