El Biffo's rating of the film Shirkers

3.5* Mixed feelings about this. Definitely a lot of inspiration sprinkled through. Sandi Tan may (or may not be) a filmmaker to keep an eye on. She often mentions things like "I know I'm an asshole. I just wanted to make my film." Which doesn't help the viewer care about her or her lost film. Or the asshole she got involved with while trying to make it. I don't really like this but have to give her credit anyway.
