A thorough mediocrity is more scattered in form and spirit.
18 February 2019 | by yoggworkSee all my reviews

A thorough mediocrity is more scattered in form and spirit. The two main male characters are all poor actors. In addition, did the director have any misunderstanding about the town in 1998? Did you wear it back in the 1980s?
