At the film's 32:31 mark, the digital clock behind Joe's mother reads, "9:08:19." At 33:03, after about another thirty seconds of dialogue, the clock reads, "9:08:25," although obviously more than six seconds have passed. See more »

Magnificent!
21 March 2017 | by LadyCoopsSee all my reviews

This movie is amazing. Beautifully written and acted.

Sadly it suffers from being put in the "comedy" genre like Lost In Translation and Birdman. Yes they are funny in parts, but ultimately the story is so sad it rips your heart out and does a little tap dance on it.

That said, this dark (and sometimes funny) tale is really interesting, and I did wonder which direction the film was headed in.

It was like a very long episode of Black Mirror. So if you like your viewing beautiful, emotional, moving, hard to watch and a little bit depressing at the end ... This bad boy is for you!

Honestly - It's REALLY good. Enjoy :)
