Saw this at the Charles recently. The reviews really had me excited. After watching it I remembered why I don't normally listen to reviews.
This film is mundane. Wide shots for much too long and poor sound quality.
After the film a friend and I debated whether films like this are highly rated by reviewers because they see so many films that ANYTHING new seems exciting or breath-taking. Or if it's "The Director's New Clothes." I take the latter position. A case of wasteful film making. Setting a camera down and watching amateurs entertain the monotony of life day to day isn't a fantastic new cinematic experience. It's tedium.
