Willful Suspension of Disbelief
29 August 2018 | by wxmanjSee all my reviews

A curious little picture of fantasy that think was for the most part well done. Not super compelling or anything to rave about but completely watchable. Clearly not for everyone esp. those who need a more concrete narrative with absolute believability.
