User Reviews

Loved it. Love slow dramas.
26 October 2016 | by SillyGayBoySee all my reviews

I basically watched this because it looked intriguing on Netflix streaming and Norman Reedus is in it. I didn't know anything else about it.

This isn't like most other films. A slow drama, dialogue based, periods of time go by and we don't know how long. It just shows clips of things, like real life, but slow and atmospheric, kind of like how real life is.

The acting and writing was well done. I enjoyed the performances. If you are a sucker for indie stuff like me that is done differently and well and not traditional Hollywood garbage then this may be up your alley.

If you are looking for something fast or action packed then this is not the film for you.

But I enjoyed it a lot.
