An exercise in style
6 November 2016 | by anne-tremblay-317See all my reviews

King Dave tells the journey of David, a seemingly dumb white guy who always takes the wrong direction at any given crossroad he leads to.

This is quite an original movie regarding

1- The story itself 2- That it's made to look like it's only one take 3- That Dave explains the story through the fourth wall while he's living it at the same time.

So big thumbs up for that fresh breath of a film.

While there's a little bit of action, a little bit of drama and a little bit of dark humor, the movie stays simple. If you want an intricate thriller, look away.

If you liked Bird Man, you'll probably enjoy this movie.
