Struggling for meaning in the modern world of app dating, phone obsession and narcissism. While some may see it as a 'Millennial' movie, it's really a mirror to where we are all at, in the dating/relationship world. And it ain't pretty.
Labels, apps, quizes, emojis, quirks, buzz phrases, hip speak (like any other generation of youth) and ultimately how superficial it all is. And transitory. Soon it'll all be replaced with the next generation, and it, and we, will be passe. We're floundering in the dark, pretending to be edgy and happy and 'happening,' when all we're doing is searching for acceptance, love, passion and some meaning in this unstable, 'Wobble Palace' of modern society.
It's a unique approach, working really well with, and because of, its limited budget. This is what makes certain indie films so appealing.
I enjoyed the style and I think you will too if you can get past the somewhat annoying, meandering natures of its self absorbed characters. To be fair, they know they're self absorbed. 'Isn't it all about us?'
I wish Eugene, Dasha and all involved, success for the future.
