Almost Great
5 March 2019 | by ivans536See all my reviews

Some odd filmmaking choices in the first third of the movie hamper the tempo and immersiveness which is partially fixed in the final act.

The movie is at its weakest when establishing and following the character of Sin-Dee while she is on her warpath. The strange angles & loud dubstep music really make it difficult to establish a connection to a character that is not very sympathetic in the first place.

However when the camera follows her friend Alexandra or Razmik, it's essentially a different, far superior film, which really encapsulates the experience of these marginalised groups of people and shows us their struggles in a sympathetic way (which is the director's specialty if his masterpiece The Florida Project is any indicator).

Liked: -some characters -the culmination and ending

Disliked: -the odd filter choice, especially since it's filmed in a location that has what seems to be the ideal lighting for the aesthetic the filmmakers are going for -Sin-Dee's portion of the film

6.5
