A brilliant satire!
5 November 2016 | by azren-delmareSee all my reviews

While some might balk at the 10 hour run time, I can wholeheartedly say that it is completely worth the time. It is especially valuable for those who are in, or are considering entering, the field of politics; the patience required to truly appreciate this work will prepare you for the drudge of your chosen career.

Those who *can* appreciate the brilliance of "Paint Drying" will find it extremely fulfilling, and an incredible satire on modern filmmaking; the drying paint is symbolic of how after the exciting parts (the painting equaling the writing, acting, etc.), everyone involved in the production must sit through the meticulous post-filming processes (editing, sfx, etc), which can take a seemingly interminable amount of time.

I won't spoil the ending, but suffice to say, it was a satisfying conclusion to the hours I had spent on the edge of my seat, with my eyes glued to the screen.

(Also, Charlie Lyne is amazing for this beautiful joke!)
