One of the best feature films to have been made in Portland...
4 May 2016 | by michaelbryanhullSee all my reviews

One of the best narrative films to have come out of the pacific northwest, more specifically Portland. McCormick uses his eye for making witty, everyday observations about the mundane that make us ask ourselves how we never thought to notice such absurdities--the freshest milk being always in the back of the fridge at the grocery store, Eli's method for eating out for every meal on a temp's salary, or David's method of getting 2,000 shaves out of a BIC razor-- McCormick even takes advantage of the 2008 economic recession, filming the once ever growing landscape of boarded-up, foreclosed homes. Some Days is an honest and deeply personal depiction of what I imagine to be McCormick's experience as a young, independent filmmaker who is searching for his path while trying to make ends meet amidst an economic crisis. Many of the films tropes will be lost on those not familiar with McCormick's body of work- -The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal, The Great Northwest, The Past and Pending Shins video, to name a few--but for those who are fans of McCormick's work, this narrative feature film could be considered the jewel in a crown of avant garde, and cinema verite documentaries.
