An Odd Amalgamation of a Small Town's Woes and Daily Concerns
27 December 2019 | by Elijah_TSee all my reviews

My gosh, this is a beautifully strange one. The consistency within its presentation and performances. The sudden "wait, wtf did they just do with the... whatever" moments. The representation of the overwhelming problems of youth. The curious length of conversations that I could not help but wonder the necessity of. Y'all, this is not a typical film deserving a wide theatrical release. What would fit its "self" is being screened with a crowd of people curious to experience this beautiful humorous butterfly the way it should be--with a live audience. Like Hausu (1977)-but not that weird-and others after it, this factory of bread feels like something unmeant to be experienced alone.

Favorite Characters:

1) Jordan. For her attitude and way about things.

2) Elsa. For her gentleness and motherly concerns.

3) Jan. For her headstrong-ness and self.

Things I Like:

1) The dialogue at certain points.

2) The soundtrack.

3) The absurdity of what is May Ray.

4) The "act-tor" that is Sir Walter.

5) The family moment.

6) The constant silent background noise.

7) The cinematography.

Trailer Warning: The only parts of the trailer that spoils anything other than a certain funny moment are 0:56-1:00 and, if you lipread, 1:16-1:21.
