I Liked It!
26 February 2019 | by MonicaKnowsBetterSee all my reviews

I saw the link to this move on a political forum and the person who posted it was asking for everyone to attack it. I guess it "triggered" some people lol.

Especially for the first movie from this director, I thought it was great. It is quite risky to put a film out with such direct political viewpoints but I think those viewpoints were very 'center' and things everyone can relate to. As far as the style of the movie, I thought it was cool how there were music videos laced throughout and the crazy 'Natural Born Killers' type of flashy editing.

A solid 9 for me for daring to do something different.
