Feels like reality
27 April 2020 | by ericobnnSee all my reviews

I'm not sure why exactly, but this film feels almost like reality. Maybe it's the great acting, sincere script, the mundane things they do, or the most likely culprit: how thoroughly flawed and rather insane all the characters are, which give them a powerful dose of believability not found in most other movies. Of course, there are still "surreal" dialogues and situations in the script, but overall, this film feels exquisitely real to me.

However, it suffers from being aimless at times, especially in the last half hour or so, but nothing too bad. I give it a 7.5/10, and it's worth watching!
