A great film.
5 June 2019 | by sherlock-holmSee all my reviews

A truly great film with beautiful direction, perfect pacing and a singular voice. This film is what we all need right now in cinema, something truly it's own and doing nothing else. And it represents us, the "losers" like me, it has finally given me my character that I can relate to; The guy who just sits and relaxes in his couch. It's a crazy ride with a character and story that never leaves a couch which a guy sits on and plays PAC-man for 90 minutes, I love it and if you are like me, you'll love it to.
