Enjoyable post-apocalyptic and tale of redemption merge, with an indie vibe. It's really not a "horror" film, but definitely 2 dramas happening at the same time - an outer apocalypse and an inner apocalypse. Seemed to capture a realistic feel in the struggle with addiction and its destruction on one's life. More cerebral than action for an end of the world flick. Some clever plot devices were refreshing. An enjoyable amount of metaphysics without being preachy. Nice cinematography and some interesting setting with some strong performances, and an enjoyable somewhat open ending that allows the viewers to think for themselves.
A kind of a "Big Chill" with an indie vibe. Ok, not exactly Big Chill, but a similar slice of life story of friends coming of age (or aging), still figuring out their place in the world, as most people are still doing into adulthood. A mix of strong actors and some developing actors. Some very nice scenery and cinematography. The music was nicely done and quite fitting with the tone(s) - both the more serious dramatic moments and more comedic moments. I can appreciate the charms of a low budget movie, where some reviewers can only compare to big budget Hollywood productions, which is really an inappropriate barometer. A reasonably sizable cast delivered a charming story with some laughs and heart tugs with a feel-good air.
Charming slice of life indie flick. A bit of a romance drama coming of age story - young adults moving into maturity, struggling with true to life issues like alcoholism and starting a family. Very affable and relatable characters. Nice camera work and very good sound quality.
What a charming spotlight on an eccentric and endearing man. I've been to Chicago many times and enjoyed seeing familiar scenery in the movie. Never heard of Vincent Falk before, but now I'll ask my Chicago friends. It looks like a lot of detective work went into learning about this marginalized man who appears to be a staple tourist attraction. Some interesting camera exposures. Heartwarming story about how an outsider carved a place of welcome for himself putting smiles on people's faces.
