  • muh.'s rating of the film Buddy Boy

    this is a weird one. a story about spiraling into schizophrenia and genetic baggage that causes it. while there are some points that i'm still uncertain if they were francis' fabrications or not and the fact that some of it seemed a bit heavy-handed it's still interesting to examine the horror that is mental illness. what can you trust if your brain plays tricks on you and what kind of a person are you in the end?

  • rorydean's rating of the film Buddy Boy

    a. Inspiring inexplicable fear, dread, or uneasiness; strange and frightening. b. Suggestive of the supernatural; mysterious. See weird. This is the sort of film you'll probably only watch once but it's well worth it, the kind that sticks with you, stands out from the crowd of carbon copies and Hollywood formulaic-flicks. Sometimes, often, the more ga-zillions in the budget the less senses required for viewing.
