Beautiful cinematography and wonderful performances with very charismatic actors. While a little light on story, I was sure this would be a shoe-in for the finals, and was sad to see it didn't make the cut.
I think this film is super charming and innocent, very gleeful. I loved how cheesy the main character was, and I LOVE the retro aesthetic that illustrates his fantasies. God this film pops.
It does feel, however, that the weakness is in the narrative - The film hides it well, but it is actually very light on story, and being that it certainly isn't your typical Cringe Comedy, does this mean the genre threw you guys? You couldn't get a handle on it?
Last year, your film "I'm Gonna" did so well because of how awesome its short concept was; two kids fantasising about who they'll be when they grow up. This year lacked that gimmick, and I think, going forward, maybe that's the way for your team to continue to thrive? Focus on a central narrative concept? Hmm, I don't want to push you guys into a style you maybe don't want to do, so I guess my point is more "This is what made your film work last year"
TITLE REVIEW: Classic! Fits the film really well.
