A pervy and boozy American Pie for 1920's sorority sisters - if that's not an appealing sell then good luck to you. Establishes some of the episodic aimlessness that will influence college comedies, and I would be surprised if Stillman didn't rework this for Damsels. Technically its lack of music and pronounced comedy beats give it a surreal quality, like a modern homage to how suggestive early cinema could be.
Surprisingly deft and daringly toned comedy. The patter, defiance and doting shown between the girls gives it a very modern feel, very much akin to a lot of the shows and films beng made on the indie scene now.
