Replica
30 May 2020 | by i_skybaSee all my reviews

Duke's full directorial debut took place.

Obviously, the kid is a fan of Tarantino movies. The film is a replica of "Pulp Fiction", and not very successful. The plot is unclear. Incomprehensible gluing of a plot (events change on each other it is not clear how).

The acting is also not perfect, the image of Swin rages throughout the film.

It should be added that the film is very long. It seems that the plot of 3 pages was simply stretched for no apparent reason for such timing.

4/10. Boring.
