Alright I love this so much. I loved the performances, the writing, the suspense being felt the entire time.
And it makes sense that Jerrod Carmichael is a comedian, because as dark as this movie seems based on the premise, it’s a dark comedy and I love that a lot. Sometimes the one-off jokes made seem a bit much, but overall; I don’t know it was just really entertaining and interesting and I liked it a lot. The overall mixture between comedy and seriousness is a line that is walked very confidently in this film.
Christopher Abbott man.. he’s really been doing it for me lately. With Possessor and Black Bear from last year alone, he’s been in so much that I absolutely love. And everything I see him in I start to love him even more. Interesting that the cast members from GIRLS that are out there doing really interesting stuff are the boys from girls.
I honestly don’t have a lot to say about this film, but I feel like I should. I responded to this a lot. I think I just have to mellow around with this in my mind for a while, and I 100% need to watch it again. This will not be for everybody, and there are parts of it that are a bit.. much if you’ve been in this world. For me, the ending (while expected) was that for me, a bit much.
Seek this out, if you think you can. I’m sure this will make its way around and A24 I’m looking at you to take care of it.
My Rating: 4/5
