Shot like a classic. Great Film!
16 September 2018 | by minniewmilesSee all my reviews

Came across this on Prime and thought I would give it a go. What a really great film this was!

Reminds me of the older 80's movies that are classics now. The pacing felt a little slow at first and I couldn't understand why, then I got it. They shot it like an older film. There are long takes and lot's of long shots. There also is no cell phones in the film, which I thought was interesting. Like an homage to older films.

The story also was shot against traditional. There is no main bad guy, no main goal that I could see. Just a couple of guys trying to figure it out. And it was refreshing to see something different.

Great film!
