Independent masterpiece
17 July 2019 | by KHMarlowSee all my reviews

As an aspiring filmmaker, myself, I can't help but admire this film. The tiny cast and crew (with almost the entire crew being one autuer) do so much with so little.

It's clever, it's well-done (especially for a film of its means), and it's funny af. Frankly, I think anyone that's just getting into filmmaking needs to watch this movie. It is essentially a lesson in doing the best you can with what little you have, and it succeeds triumphantly. I found it inspiring and motivating--like it was telling me "stop overthinking it, you really can make a movie with what you've got," and I love it for that.

The only thing I can even imagine being an issue with some people is that it has its moments where it feels amateur-ish, but anyone who has an issue with that, especially in a film with a budget and skeleton crew like this.

Mr. Presto for 2020.
