Trivia

Following the world premiere at Sundance Film Festival 2017 at the Eccles theatre during the Q&A, the cast were asked what attracted them to the project. Mark Hamill talked about how much he liked the script and the originality of the story, but also joked: 'Also, I actually had lines. You know, that's always a bonus for me'. This is a reference to the fact that all of his lines were cut from Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). See more »

A Masterpiece on Friendship and Filmmaking.
26 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

There are few movies in the past that have truly embraced the idea that cinema is a collaborative art form. Perhaps now more than ever, the institution of 'getting your friends together to make a movie' is more popular than going to actual film school.

At the same time I would be re-missed if I didn't mention the alternative dark side to the universe and being brainwashed by cultural ideology since birth. Overall works on multiple levels.
