Amazingly good piece that makes you think, and brings the core issues of multiple teen epidemics into the spot light.

'States Evidence' is an amazingly good film that highlights the major issues that strike America, even 10 years later. Teen epidemics like drug abuse, suicide, aspergers, heavily lacking on self awareness, and psychopathy alike.

The film features a variety of well fleshed out characters that have their own unique personalities that in no way feel dry or stereotypical. Character personalities are defined by the character's actions, and as a result grow and change over the course of the film.

The cinematography is great, and always feels natural in the way it presents itself to the viewer. The realistic way that the characters film their day to day life when meshed with the omniscient standard camera work feels totally seamless. The way that the director attempts to pull you into the story and care about its environs is completely immersive and never feels forced or off-putting.

To be short on character count, I'll also add that the writing is top notch and the dialogue flows naturally. Every aspect of this movie is perfect, and if you have a spare hour I'd recommend you watch this film right away. It's on youtube, and youtube is always free!
