Birbiglia is warm and clever. His jokes are nothing mindblowing but it's solid, delightful humour throughout.
Nicolas Cage as the lovable yet ultimately misguided "Hi" is almost perfect casting. A wonderful ensemble piece that wallows in its middle-america setting, characters and storytelling.
An unsuccessful attempt to emmulate some of the greatest works of sci-fi leaves this film stuck between tropes and themes it never quite manages to master. A poor man's The Martian, with sprinklings of sci-fi greatness dropped clumsily throughout - struggles to be anything more than a low budget monster thriller with quashed aspirations.
In the way the film treats its subjects it can be accused of being too heavy-handed in the 'games as art' discussion. A sweet film that can appeal to gamers and non-gamers alike - it feels like a wonderful celebration of the artistic process as much as it does fan service for videogame hobbyists.
From its use of tension and claustraphobic setting to the casting and scenery, this film is a directoral masterpiece. One of the greatest thrillers made in recent years - it's violence, music and dialogue are all used incredibly. Every element is meticulously crafted into something that is pure entertainment from start to finish.
