3 December 2018 | by FloralSunglassesSee all my reviews

This movie is more of a comedy and i love that so much. Plus Elliot's actor has a real energy to his character. But so much is weighed down by everything the film isnt as far as a movie goes. Like, most of the acting and the editing is just straight up bizarre and all over the place with an animated sequence that was quirky but again was just kind of bizarrely placed.

I wish that there were more lgbt films that could really shine. Especially because I particularly like Elliot and his position with his relationships, but I felt like the presentation was just so barren and devoid of the life that his life is filled with. I also love the latino culture in this movie, but it didnt really feel entirely flesh out and included.
