Darling of Tribeca Film Festival, but....
26 April 2019 | by AugustBudWeiserSee all my reviews

...it's dark (did the DP leave his thumb over the iPhone camera?), somewhat incomprehensible, rather boring and obviously a freshman effort.

The actors' performances are very strong, but the film literally lulled me to sleep.

The gushing over the young director (okay, he made the film in high school, rah, rah, rah) and existence of 20+ Marvel Cinematic Universe "films" may indicate the end of civilization is near.

Suppose it was time for "Beasts of the Southern Wild 2," because this is it. That film was much more interesting.
