Idea of Manhood
3 April 2019 | by marklakeSee all my reviews

I watched the Idea of Manhood based on a recommendation of a friend and glad I did. I found the film a beautiful, modest yet important little cultural artifact and an accurate snapshot of our times, especially for those of us who live in NYC. Yet it's so personal and intimate I'm sure it most anyone could relate. Karl Bury's performance, especially in the final act, is so raw and seamless I found it heartbreaking. Great script with lots of little comedic gems along the way that keep you entertained while these characters grapple with their lives at hand with struggles and dilemmas we can all relate to.
