    Another housebound quarantine movie! I enjoyed that it lacked a narrative structure, like the mumblecore stuff she emerged from. Very heavyhanded writing. I think she was going for 2000s era Gregg Araki or Shortbus, colorful sexual fantasy, but it just does not work.


    Fun note: This is the first covid-era movie I’ve seen where people not only occasionally acknowledge covid, but the lead character talks with a mask over her mouth in several scenes, making the dramatic acting that much less impactful

    The original sadboi/softboi documenting his awkward life, pre-John Wilson! Not the original original, but the 80s version. If this were made today it would be an 8 hour long YouTube vlog, but as it is, it’s a hilarious and self-effacing 16mm slice of life portrait from a nerdy quiet film bro who wants to fuck every woman in her 20s/30s (he would also be canceled for this now, but in the 80s people tolerated public male lustfulness). I love watching people’s lives!
