Some of the deadpan moments and more fraught exchanges don't really come off. But all in all, it's one curious, and furious, escapade.
Even in its longueurs Young Bodies yields beauty and surprise, and there are inklings of some grand conception, even among scenes that feel haphazardly chosen ...
Anarchic surface behaviors wear out their welcome in Andrew T. Betzer's intriguing but aimless debut feature.
Violence and tenderness, piety and crime unite in a terrifying tangle of stunted emotions.
In the best tradition of Huckleberry Finn, both brothers are gullible dummies providing an entree to various American eccentrics, and like that book, Betzer's movie (2014) is a crazy quilt whose regional charms obscure a ramshackle plot.
I struggled with parts of the second half, but the film is worth the struggle; Betzer's up to something visually, and he has a ripe career ahead of him. At least I hope he does.
The film, shot on 16mm by Sean Williams, gives the film a retro out-of-time feel and Betzer gives us room to think - the spartan scripting matched by a minimalistic approach to the music
Sometimes, anonymity and minimalism can work in film, but Young Bodies Heal Quickly is not one such example.
It isn't quite sustainable as far as crafting a narrative goes, but it is admirable.
Audiences looking for something offbeat-if also off-putting-should find themselves appropriately bemused.
Its lack of dramatic specificity places it in a precarious middle ground between exacting character study and ethereal parable.
