Cheaply Clever And Cleverly Cheap
10 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film at a festival last year, without an idea what to expect.

To say the least, I was absolutely floored by its excellence.

This film is the very epitome of creating something out of practically nothing, and in fact, that very approach creates and carries the film from start to finish, as well as many clever self-aware jokes along the way.

The introspective perspective of a film that knows its a film creates a unique dichotomy of those that "get into" their hobbies too much versus those that never really join in.
