Repeaters contains numerous film school conventions and setups -- pretty shots with shallow depth of field while characters say things that sound profound but are meaningless. It feels like a movie with the mission to look like a real movie. Bessai certainly wanted to make something thinky and challenging. But we've seen this movie already a thousand times and its stale dialogue. The late night group drug trip gone awry is just so cliché. It would have been much edgier to avoid the MTV soundtrack and instead of trying to sell us on how wild these kids are (Fast Times at Ridgemont High was much more harrowing as a comedy), go into their real fears and dreams. It starts with writing not camera work.
