THERE IS NO STORY HERE - ANOTHER REASON AUSSIE FILMS ARE BAD
24 July 2020 | by movieguy3000See all my reviews

If you think filming a whole bunch of people walking around doing mundane things or everyday things is interesting then watch this bad film. A bunch of late teens walking around, taking drugs and there is NO story. No emotion, nothing compelling, nothing interesting, nothing entertaining and definitely no heart. There is no struggle or even a goal for the so called protagonists. I've never seen so many shots of houses, trees, birds, planes etc to fill in a film that has no story or purpose. There is NO vision here, a Director should understand storytelling. You cant shoot a bunch of stuff and try an and be arty farty and expect people to understand it. Gender bending, confusion, winging teens. Basic dialogue and characters are walking around with no motivation, no goal. People don't want to watch nothing. The acting is passable but mediocre, the most interesting actor is the middle eastern actress, who is by far the best actress and great to look at. 1 star for effort.
