User Reviews

 
Excellent acting and script work, just wish it didn't end so suddenly and so soon
21 May 2020 | by joelwatchesmoviesSee all my reviews

The first act set-up of the quirky plot and authentic characters is great (minus the TV sitcom-esque in-between-scenes guitar riffs), wonderfully acted and laced with subtle humour and dramatic intrigue that are followed up on to absolute perfection in that thing of dramatic/comedic beauty that is the truck convo (Maron's monologue is a particular highlight). After all that great script work though the ending feels a little too insubstantial, and comes a good half hour too early too to boot. 7.5/10
