interesting stop-motion look
20 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

In a Sydney apartment building, Dave Peck is an unemployed 28 year old living with his father Jim. Jim encounters a homeless man who pulls out a gun. He's not robbing him but only wants a dollar. Jim doesn't give him the dollar and he shoots himself. Dave buys a book giving the meaning of life for $9.99 in the mail. His brother Lenny gets him a job as a repossessor. Lenny has model girlfriend Tanita who is obsessed with smooth hairless guys. The homeless man returns as an Angel and talks to old man Albert. Zacky is a soccer obsessed boy. His father gives him a piggy bank instead of a soccer toy. Ron asks Michelle to get marry but she rejects him.

The stop-motion claymation looks interesting. It gives the movie an originality. The story has plenty of weird touches although it's too scattered. The narrative meanders a lot following quite a few main characters. It opens with an intriguing scene. Then it grounds down a bit. Dave is an annoying character. I can't tell if he's mentally handicap. He's slow and clueless like a 10 year old. I don't understand Michelle although her phrase "I'm not yelling. I'm just talking very loud." is kinda funny. Angel falling off the building should have been the climax. It is definitely a great scene. In general, the story is a bit too scattered and it needs a more compelling lead than Dave.
