"You Won't Miss Me" starts with Shelly(Stella Schnabel, who also co-wrote) being told by her therapist that she is not mentally ill enough to stay at the hospital anymore. On the other hand, there is the issue of drugs which she consumes with friends before hooking up with one for the night. Otherwise, she goes out for acting auditions while making a film with another friend.

Without much of a story to speak of, "You Won't Miss Me" still manages to stand on its own as a character study of somebody who is not impossible, just difficult. In fact, the only scene I had trouble watching was Shelly smoking in the hotel lobby probably because it was so unnecessary a confrontation it had to be a performance. Admittedly, Shelly finds drugs as a temporary escape from her life, of which the same thing could be said of her acting where she tries on different personas like clothes. In the process, she is exposed to new ideas and people while not being fond of the professional side of the acting process.

While it often verges toward becoming tiresome and tedious, Ry Russo-Young manages to hold the film together with a constant feeling of dread. It stays with you and offers a disturbing glimpse into urban youth.

Strangely compelling. It wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but I was riveted by Stella Schnabel's performance and the dream-like construction.
