Saw this film as part of the LA Comedy Shorts block at a festival. It was easily my favorite of the films in its set.
The slightly heightened reality of Karl's world was enjoyable and because it was never presented in a heavy-handed way it was quite believable.
The title character is flawed, likable and very real in his mixed emotions. And the actor, Paul Goetz, was a treat to watch, especially in his interactions with his mother (also a delightful performer). All of the main three characters were very easy to like. I would love to see more of them. It succeeded for me in a way that the films I heard it being compared to (Juno, Napoleon Dynamite) weren't quite able to.
Very nice journey!
