Absolutely batshit crazy. Some fun ideas about the intersection of humanity and technology but even at 67 minutes it's probably a little too long for the plot, and sometimes difficult to follow. The way it looks is pretty incredible though, as are the lo-fi industrial tunes in the score.
A brilliant film, equal parts serious and silly. Explores the ideas of different types of truth ("stories are lies that reveal a greater truth") and history which we makee for ourselves, and in particular that marginalised communities make for themselves. It's incredibly subtle for a debut film, and while it's clearly very low budget/amateur that never detracts. Ideas around intersectionality are brilliantly explored. Clearly wears its Spike Lee influence on its sleeve but hey at least with the shoutout they're honest. Big recommend.
I wanted to like this film a lot more than I actually did. It's got a lot of really interesting ideas about the nature/banality of evil, the rot at the core of British society, but in many ways it's a bit messy. Just isn't sure exactly what it wants to be and not quite making any particular point clearly enough. Certainly one of the darkest things I've seen recently.
Typical sort of Oscar bait drama, albeit with a slightly different backdrop to the usual. The narrative arc is kind of tried and tested and what sits at the heart is really rather conventional. Nothing to write home about.
