Amazing
29 April 2019 | by trvarySee all my reviews

I viewed this at Tribeca (at its premiere actually) and I want to let everyone know that's this movie is a freaking masterpiece. I love it's style. It's a super intriguing character study that's is both emotional and hilarious and the lead performance by Diego Perretti is extremely nuanced and deserving of being placed up with some of the greats. I'm worried this won't get the attention it deserves so if you see this, find this movie, watch this movie, and please support it because I really wanna we what these directors have on store next. Also they seem like super nice people they were at the premiere.
