The Holiday Movie
Wellington > 06

Certainly unique, I could definitely see a crazed auteur behind the wheel of this one as an electric guitar beer loving bogan drove around and tried to engage with his mum in the lead up to Christmas. The car driving shots had an ethereal, oneiric quality and this presented the idea of how loneliness can be a genuinely problematic issue around the holiday period for people, as can family. Also the recording of phone conversations due to paranoia and a previous theft of the laptop fit nicely with the character arc that we were privy to witness. Genuinely takes effort to pull this aethetic off but I think you nailed it.
