The Myth of the American Sleepover—-Some of the cinematography and transition sequences in this movie are absolutely fantastic. The way it’s shot, mixed with the subject matter, reminds me so much of home.
I wish I knew how to make gifs because the subtle movement in these shots is really nice, but even without it they so accurately portray the suburbs at dawn.
This is my second time watching this movie and I still can’t decide if it’s a good movie or not. A lot of the acting falls a little short, as well as the script, but in some parts that completely turns around and there’s an amazing character interaction that is just fantastic.
I guess I like the fact that its not perfect. It’s just a well made indie film with practically no budget, mediocre acting acting scripting, but still sends out its message. It makes me feel like becoming a filmmaker is something that, given time and practice, is something I can actually do. The imperfection in some movies make me feel like my goal is more attainable
