Have you seen that Key and Peele sketch where the one guy is helping the other guy move and hasn’t heard of dubstep? You should, it’s hilarious. It also represents pretty much the entirety of my knowledge of dubstep. So a film with a synopsis that includes the words “underground dubstep” isn’t exactly up my alley. And yet, Snap was one of the most interesting films to play SXSW this year. Part of the film’s success lay in its structure as a good old fashioned character study. The character in question is Jim Whitman (Jake Hoffman), a quiet, socially inept guy whose only outlet is creating his own dubstep mixes in his apartment. His one friend, Jake (Thomas Dekker), is constantly pushing him to get out and do more, to interact with people, to date someone. Sometimes Jake comes off as empathetic but more often than not he badgers, insults »
