Trivia

The story takes place in an undisclosed year in the 90's, earliest 1993 due to Bill Clinton on TV and Set Adrift On Memory Bliss being played in girl's bedroom. (EDIT: Nice, but the movie True Lies, which came out in 1994, was referenced as having been rented, which makes it 1994-1995 at the earliest.) See more »

A quite little atmospheric tragedy
27 June 2020 | by sebpucherSee all my reviews

Super dark Times focuses on a group of teenagers who struggle after the events of a serious accident. After watching this movie, I can say that the movie is really well executed and has great writing and great atmosphere and visuals. I can see this movie playing out in an awkward pretentious way, but it stays grounded and doesn't get too far-fetched which I enjoy. This movie is a no means perfect, the characterization is a little rough around the edges, but most characters (Especially the main protagonist) make good rational decisions. If this movie developed the main antagonist a little more and gave this character more incentive, this movie would be an easy 9/10. Overall good film, realistic characters, bleak imagery, and a solid atmospheric setting. I would check it out if you like a darker more uncomfortable tone.
