Big fish little fish, cardboard box! 👍
8 May 2019 | by jasongkgreenSee all my reviews

Well, if you missed out on a rave in the 90's with MDMA (E) then this is a good attempt at the experience. A story of brotherhood and the rave culture. Some trippy effects and a really good depiction of a rave when out of it!

I enjoyed the strong cast. A few laughs, some heart swell. A sprinkle of political commentary. It is a film of its time.

I enjoyed it and can see why it has won a few awards. It had atmosphere and felt like an experience in places. One I was glad throw some mental shapes to! 👍
