Fat City

Fat City ★★★★

Expertly clear-cut and concise with no fat to trim and so much said and done with how it's directed. Themes are elegantly exhibited with gracious empathy for its characters through the sheer simplicity of their respective stories and actions. Performances are faultlessly immaculate, breathing naturality towards the smaller details that make up the film's overall temper. Everything is just as clean and efficient as can be, whether it be scenes endearing or mellow. Compacted, guided, and adjusted in an impeccably regardful and sensitively gratifying way
