bryan donnell's rating of the film Grandma

On the one hand, it seems like too much of it may depend on us believing the actors when they cry, which I don't -- it feels like Acting. On the other, I like that this is a little glimpse; the fragmented nature of the "narrative"; and what it tries to do. My ultimate test for a film is, does it make me want to make a movie myself? If yes then it's a thumbs up, so thumbs up here.
