Not a particularly amazing film, but not necessarily a bad film either. It had a relatable story with some fleshed-out and engaging characters. I prefer a bit more visual language over the naturalistic handheld style. Overall, though, I was surprised about how much I connected and enjoyed this picture.
This is a special little film! Though its premise is simple, its characters are full and completely engaging throughout. With simple yet incredibly lively filmmaking, Sebastián Silva lets his characters come to life with ease, also thanks to strong performances from himself, his brothers, and especially Michael Cera and Gaby Hoffmann. They expertly cover extreme yet well realized clashing personalities with heart..
Such a great film! One of my favourites this year by a long stretch. I don't usually want to rewatch films after I've seen them, but this one was just so great. Gabby Hoffman is amazing. The entire cast is perfectly suited, I liked the Silva brothers so much. Do yourself a favor and see Crystal Fairy.
