Movie Info

Life sucks for Jim. His best friend Michael is now hanging with the cool kids and Jim's only companion is his dog. He's stuck in a small town where nothing ever exciting happens, until... Dean, a mysterious American moves in to the house next door. Dean is older, good looking and in Jim's eyes the coolest guy he's ever met. Jim can't believe his luck. Dean offers him friendship, helps him win the girl of his dreams and he soon becomes the most popular boy in school. But when it turns out Dean is hiding a dark secret, Jim is forced to question if his newfound popularity is really worth it.

There's classy camerawork to recommend, but the story peters out.

He [Craig Roberts] expertly nails both ambiance and characterization.

Just Jim, with Roberts as Jim, is another coming of age tale, this one enlivened by the appearance of Emile Hirsch as Jim's cool new neighbour and mentor. Slight.

Some of it sticks; some of it doesn't. But there's a huge amount to admire in Roberts' sheer cinematic exuberance, with a determinedly non-naturalistic perspective.

Craig Robert's film debut takes on the diferent tropes of the teen comedy genre but infuses them with dark and acid humor, making it a much more enjoyable experience. [Full review in Spanish]

Roberts is already a singular screen presence, and here acquits himself confidently behind the camera, handling the film's shifting tones with nicely cracked off-kilter humour.
