Storyline

L for Leisure is a comedy following a group of graduate students across 10 vacations in 1992 - 3 all around the world as they embark on a series of minor adventures: athletic, chemical, cultural and sexual. With a low-fi 16mm style that recalls 90s television, home videos and underground comic books, L FOR LEISURE is a unique piece of deeply independent filmmaking, reveling in excesses of both lush beauty and awkward humor. Written by Anonymous

Instant Classic
28 November 2014 | by laurencespellmanSee all my reviews

I caught this movie during the London Film Festival, part of my few random bookings to avoid only watching the higher profile flicks.

Lucky for me.

Rarely will I ever comment on a film, personally I like to experience films without intro or clue or expectation. So I wont be mentioning specifics. But what I will say is that as I saw all it's filmic influences and it's many original flourishes converge, as I experienced it's tone, its audacious style, as it stole big laughs from the strangest of places, as I thought of the joy that must've been had making it, as it surprised me at every turn, I was left in no doubt that this is a serious piece of art, and to me, a masterpiece.

I hope this gets the audience it deserves. I urge you to track this down. An instant classic.
