Funny, Sincere, and Relatable without being corny
2 May 2020 | by brentonwisemanSee all my reviews

I am a 21 yr old man that doesn't have kids and I still deeply connected with "Blocks". Many shows/features that have similar themes and conflict seem to fall flat, especially with the attempts at humor. But the writing and acting shine bright in this, making the 12 min run time feel like 5. "Blocks" is also very well shot and edited without being in-your-face and distracting you from what's really important: the mother.

Of all the SXSW features and shorts I've seen so far, it looks like I'll be recommending this one the most.
