Time has been good to "The Color Wheel." Seven years later, this indie comedy has not been eclipsed for its acerbic and keenly observed script. Carlen Altman and Alex Ross Perry are a dream duo as two constantly bickering slackers who slowly come to realize they don't fit in anywhere except with each other. The fact that they're siblings complicates things, but refreshingly doesn't come to define them - or the film.
This could have been made from the earlier 90s along side of Slacker and Clerks! Beautiful grainy 16mm cinematography with wonderful dialogue! Its basically people bitching at each other but is done with such wit and harsh comedy that you might be utterly charmed by the end with me! Its a very surprising movie and a new favorite of mine.
