amazing cinematography, editing and FX... nothing noteworthy beyond this
10 October 2018 | by Jimi_HendriixSee all my reviews

Excellent sound editing- particularly the use of saturated moog, stereo panning and compression to simulate the aural qualities under drugs. The cinematography was fantastic too, especially the taiwan sequence. Can't say much about the plotline- it was the sort of book that cannot be ported to movie in any concise manner with its stream-of-consciousness mode of prose.

Justin Chon's character was a quite faithful representation of Tao Lin, capturing the monotonous deadpan demeanour fans cherish the author for.

Worth a watch, but perhaps not a whole lot beyond that.
