A Different Take on Love and Life
17 February 2019 | by mjcapriottiSee all my reviews

At first, I wasn't sure if this was a romance movie or not. I was very confused by the plot and direction the movie was going, but at the end I realized the point of such a movie. The whole thing was shot as a documentary within a documentary into someone's life. It's not about a long, perilous journey that ends in a neat little bow at the end like most movies do. This was a documentary into someone's life, with all the nitty gritty details added in: the awkward pauses, the things left unsaid, the body language, the silent conversations, the lies, etc. And I honestly loved that new take. The ending wasn't wrapped into a neat little bow, because life isn't like that at all. It wasn't just a new take on the movie plot, but a new take on what a movie should leave you with. It's ugly and awkward and wonderful all at the same time, just like real life romances are. The only complaint I have about it is that I would like to have seen more scenes with our main character and his film editing, as I felt like that was a really important character detail and would have given more insight into him as a character and his thought process behind love and relationships. A lot of his character development was left unsaid, which is understandable given the message at the ending, but I would have loved to see him film others in his documentary. If you're not into indie films or thought-provoking (but not necessarily happy) endings, this is not the movie for you. But if you are, I would definitely give it a try before you skip past it on your Netflix list. It's different, but in a good, cringey, awkward, wonderful sort of way
