Not nearly as smart as it thinks it
16 September 2019 | by themightykazoo-30763See all my reviews

Lacks any real substance. Its an artsy fartsy movie that thinks it is more intelligent than it is. Just a boring movie that bills itself as something it's not instead of the college film class movie that it is. Take a pass on this one. You won't miss out on anything and you once you die you will be happy that you didn't waste hours of your life on this garbage
