Jeonju International Film Festival listing
I caught this movie towards the end of the Toronto International Film Festival, and it easily ranked one of the highest movies on my list. It was funny, smart, well filmed, well written, and just all around fun to watch. Certain bits ran on a little longer than needed, but nothing to the point of boredom, and there was always a punch line to be had within the film. It was easy-going, but had a silly feeling like something out of a teen stoner movie (something made clear once the main character wakes up missing a certain article of clothing in the winter). This movie deserves all the credit it can muster as well, because unless you actually pay attention to the credits, or care about this sort of stuff, you might forget that this whole film was done by one man, and I mean the WHOLE thing save for the acting and some other minor bits. This was an entire creative license taken by the director and it worked phenomenally, to the point where everything seemed effortless, and made me gasp in awe of the amount of work that it must've taken to create such an amazing project. The film is sublime in every sense of the word and I recommend that everyone hunt down some friends, and just watch this film and have a good time laughing yourself silly.
