It's a reality movie. It's like the Real Cancun, which was the first reality movie or an episode of Hogan knows best.
A Joe Carman Writes, Directs and produces a film about his life as an aging MMA fighter and how he juggles it with being a family man. It's actually a great set up for a reality TV show for ESPN or something, but instead he releases it as a film.
The cameras follow Joe and his family around capturing his life but Joe let's the cameras do all the talking and does not have those interviews in dark rooms you see in a bunch of reality shows. I love that, and I think it was brilliant. Doing it that way, It honestly took me awhile before I realized It was not a straight up narrative.
No wonder the acting was sooooo good, it was not acting. There were these scenes in which Joe is interacting with his parents and his children are having a private discussion about their dad that pound at your heart better than any actor ever could.
So far the best most exciting movie I've seen in 2018. This unconventional approach cinema wins the fight in my book.
